This War Department boundary stone, marked WD 100, is
sited in Mansion Row at Brompton in Kent.
Mansion Row and, further along Maxwell Road, were once both part of Military
Road, a communication road serving the Chatham Lines and Forts. This road
originally ran from St Mary's Island over in the north and all the way to Fort
Pitt over in the south. Mansion Row was built along the edge of Military
Road in the mid to late 18th century, and housed military officers. Nowadays,
only one small stretch of it retains that original name of Military Road, and is
located in Chatham town centre.
