Comments
This is a half-buried reclining stone. The stone appears to mark the north-west boundary of the John Tennant lease marked on the Brailsford 1781 survey, the south-west corner of which is marked by the John Tennant Founder stone by the Beever Dam (see Meerstone 57). Meerstone 42 is a third John Tenant stone. The death of John Tenant is recorded in the Linton Parish register in 1792.
