Comments
This is a stone lying flush with the grass, with a very eroded inscription carved over two lines which in the photograph has been picked out with peat. The stone is probably associated with the south-east corner of the lease held by J. Clayton & Co marked on the Brailsford 1781 survey. A drawing of the inscription appears in Arthur Raistrick's paper The Founder Meer in the NCMRS 1962-1963 Transactions (See references). Photograph courtesy of John Crossland.
