It's on a boulder located on a platform some distance from the Tai Hang Rd Children's Playground.

Unknown nature

KYF stone [????- ]

We came across this when we descended from PB111, after passing a small cemetery, it's the junction of a path and the road leading downhill to the public lavatory of Nam Pin Wai. 

Before going down, we went up a little bit for the gate of a farm, before reaching it, this stone caught my eye on the right of the dirt track.

Anyone know what the inscription means? I am wondering if it's just the boundary stone of the farm nearby, with only its rusted gate left ... as can be seen here in this Google map link:

香港, 新界南邊圍

Just by chance I found on YouTube a film from 1949 titled  Hong Kong Under The Red Shadow Australia's Northern Frontier (1949)

At the end of this short (2:54) film this boundary stone is shown close to Man Kam To bridge.

On 7 January 2018, I found a stone marker at Kai Kuk Shue 鷄谷樹 in the North East New Territories. 

It notes the year 丁未. 

I wonder which 丁未 year would that be and why?
