1/48 5 boundary stones
on border with
5 boundary stones. Circa 1850. Sandstone ashlar. Square-section blocks,
c. 1.0 metre long, each with pecked lower panels below plain panels with
inscriptions; low domed pyramidal tops. West face of each inscribed GH for
Greenwich Hospital, and east face inscribed DC for Duke of Cleveland: most
northerly inscribed EC, probably for Ecclesiastical Commissioners, on north;
these inscriptions in large Roman capitals. Most northerly also bears date
1880 in smaller plain capitals on south face, probably referring to confirmation
of boundary. They mark land ownership on a lead-rich hillside, and lie on the
boundary between Cumbria and County Durham. Henry Vane of Raby Castle became
Duke of Cleveland in 1832; in 1857 the boundary was described as 'recently
surveyed'. 2 most northern stones lying on ground at time of survey.
