Thank you for adding these,  I hadn't realised there were any near Delphi!

Between Fort Darland and this area the land was used as a training ground.  Delphi is placed near to where the armaments depot was located.

War Department boundary stone WD 135 in woods below the North end of the Darland banks, Gillingham. I assume once more that this was part of the boundary of Fort Darland, just like stones 172, 179 and 180.

War Department boundary stone WD No 172 in one corner of East Hoath wood, Gillingham adjacent to the Delphi factory boundary. It has a concrete fence post in front of it. I presume this is part of the boundary of Fort Darland (now the Gillingham business estate).

From a 1906 ordnance map it shows the large number of boundary markers around Walmer castle.
Also notice that Kingsdown Road was called Wellington Road back then.

Just noticed this unusual one on Sunday - Board of Ordnance boundary stone at the base of the Chatham Gun Wharf wall in St Mary's Churchyard

These are on the wall near St. Mary's Church. They mark the boundary between the Army & Navy Gun Wharfs

I found this one when passing by in a car on the top of the Rochester Maidstone Road. The other picture, I am not sure if it is a boundary marker but remember it well from going to church further down the Maidstone Road outside Saint John Fishers church.

Barrier Road, Chatham. Behind the Brook Theatre, near The Eye.

If this is one, it's not in its original location and has been moved.
