The signpost points northwards along the "Wanderlust Way". The obelisk is a monument to William Shaw of Brocklesby .. the plaque reads 'This monument was erected by his many friends as a token of their regard and to mark the spot where William Smith, huntsman to the Earl of Yarborough fell on 11th April 1845. His gallant horsemanship and management of hounds in the kennel and in the field were unsurpassed. His horse falling over a small leap whilst Smith was cheering on his favourite hounds, he was thrown on his head and from the injuries he then received, he died on 16th April 1845 at the house of his friend Richard Nainby of this village esquire, by whom the site for this memorial was given on the 6th day of April 1861'
