This is one of the many old Boundary Stones on the moors which one comes across from time to time. Most are a couple of hundred years old and often used to signify either where one moor starts and another stops – but some were put there by previous landowners to enclose the moors to keep trespassers out.
Wherever their purpose, it is always nice when I come across one – especially if I don’t know it is there. And also to examine the initials and dates carved on them. This one has a large ‘N’ carved on it with the date 1893. It also has a large initial ‘G’ carved on the other side.
Just another mystery on these mysterious moors.
