A modernised transcription held in the Wharncliffe Estate Office at Wortley
reads :-
Pray for the soul of Thomas Wortley / Knight for the
Kings body to the Kings Edward 4th / Richard 3rd and
Henry 8th (whose faults/God pardon) which Thomas
caus'd a Lodge to be built / on this crag in the
midst of Wharncliffe for his / pleasure to hear the
Harts bell in the year of our Lord 1510.
Previous list description says of the house : "The domestic part of Wharncliffe
Hall which was built in C16 and is now mostly demolished.... Home of Lady
Mary Wortley-Montague in early C18. Commands wonderful view which has
literary associations in Lady Mary's writings. "
