Guidestone, Lindley Moor Road / Crosland Road, Lindley cum Quarmby
Guidestone, Lindley Moor Road / Crosland Road, Lindley cum Quarmby
This was erected by A Mallinson, Surveyor, 1755. It was at a crossroads, and the directions for Lindley Moor Road are Brighouse III miles (why a Roman number?), Marsden 5 miles, and for the cross road Milsbridge 2 miles (via Crosland Road), Halifax 4 miles. The road to Halifax no longer exists; a track to Haigh House Hill is shown on the OS 6 map of c.1940, and from there a lane goes to Kew Hill. This track has now been severed by the M62. The cross road was not shown by Jeffreys on his map of 1775. W B Crump states in his book on Huddersfield Highways that the guidestone used to be in the middle of Crosland Road.
