Upright stone, Maiden Way on Melmerby Fell
Upright stone, Maiden Way on Melmerby Fell
We saw no markings on the stone but its location near the old bridleway (and Roman Road) suggests it was a marker for the route in poor weather. No need today with Cross Fell in clear view across the moorland miles.
