Hurkling Stone
According to a transcript of the document, 'Perambulation of Baslow Boundary 1721', the Hurkling Stone is located on the boundary of the Manor of Baslow, and it bears the inscription XMB. The Hurkling Stone stands at the junction of the present day parish and district boundaries, by two ancient walls. I have read that 'Hurkling' or 'Herklin' means to crouch.

Thanks to Martin Speck for the notes, and for pointing me in the direction of this stone.
