No not 263 (yrds) yards, the number (1) in front is not seen so well here on my photo, (but you with Hawk Eyes will spot it!) so it actually reads 1263 yards. This distance down the fence/wall line arrives at another stone with the same information of 1263 yrds with an arrow pointing back to this stone on my photo. To see and talk in 'yards' is so comforting to people of my ilk who still live in the old 'wise' but innocent world of reliable memories of buttoned trouser braces that actually worked, and do not recognise or respect the newish 1974 border lines of Yorkshire/Lancashire ! This stone here mind you has nothing to do with the White or magnificent Red Lancashire Rose check point Charlie's, where the Yorkists will check how much brass one has in the pockets afore they let you in, or leave for that matter if it's considered one hasn't spent enough!
