Downe’s unusual stone

Downe stone

This stone has been in the village for a number of decades and was used to assist people. What was it used for?

It’s a mounting block used by horse riders to mount following a visit to the Forge. The Forge was almost opposite the stone which is situated at the village end of Luxted Road adjacent to Petley’s.
