Listing Text

(north side)
3/19 Greyhound stone
approx. 300 metres
east of junction with
Hartcliff Hill Road


Boundary marker. Date uncertain but probably medieval. Sandstone post.
Rectangular with elliptical panel with bas-relief of a running greyhound.
Above, later inscribed initials 'M W P'.
The stone is mentioned in accounts of the boundaries of the parish of
Thurlstone in the time of Henry VIII and of Langsett in 1695. It is
mentioned in the Enclosure Act of 1814 relating to the parishes of Penistone,
Langsett and Thurlstone. It is thought to mark the boundaries of William
Payne and Lord Melbourne, the former purchasing the manor of Langsett from
Lord Melbourne in 1814. It has been suggested (Dransfield) that the initials
'M W P' refer to these names and were added at this time. In 1984 the stone
was moved back to its original site, according to the 1814 documents.
The stone is on the boundary of the parishes of Penistone and Langsett.

J. H. Dransfield, Historv of Penistane, 1906.
