This was a landmark on the town's traditional north-east boundary, where it turned from Burgess Road, near where Swaythling Methodist Hall now stands, slightly east of south, before joining an old streambed running down to the River Itchen at Haven Stone in Hilton. Langhorne Road is a late 19th century development named after the feature. A modern mark stone stands in the courtyard of the Methodist Church. The boundary so indicated was rejected by the Boundary Commission of 1832 in favour of the one drawn narrowly along the course of Boundary Brook. Langhorne appears as a personal name in the terrier-of-1495 (or rental) of 1495.
