Boundary Stone, Prod Howe, Snilesworth Moor
Boundary Stone, Prod Howe, Snilesworth Moor
There is a lot of dressed stone lying around some of which has been piled around the boundary stone to build a cairn. And with a branch added for good measure. This is a bit of a mystery. There are no ruins of a building nearby nor records of one on maps and the nearest plantation is two kilometres away. Someone's gone to a lot of trouble. Bill Cowley in his book "Snilesworth" suggests this branch must be bog oak perhaps a relic of the pre-historic forest. Apparently the branch was placed at least eighty years ago and used to have three branches hence the local name of "Three Legs".
