Currick on Tindale Fell
Currick on Tindale Fell
The large scale maps show this as a currick, usually defined as a stone shelter built by shepherds. The pillar would help them find it in poor weather. The ditch before the stones continues right across the top of the ridge between the valley of Howgill to the west and Black Burn near Raven Crag to the east. It is probably a boundary line between estates.
