This is a 40 cm high founder stone dating from about 1791. George Fletcher had previously been the Duke of Devonshire's local mining agent, and this is one of three of his stones found in this area. See Meerstone 17 and Meerstone 52. Meerstone 41 and Meerstone 64 are also George Fletcher stones, but on a different lease.
