SD9420 : Guide stone on Reddyshore Scout Gate, Walsden - Halifax face

taken 1 year ago, near to Warland, Calderdale, Great Britain

Guide stone on Reddyshore Scout Gate, Walsden - Halifax face
Guide stone on Reddyshore Scout Gate, Walsden - Halifax face
This stone has four inscribed faces as follows:

To Halifax 10 M
To Todmorden 2 M
To Burnley 9 M
To Rochdale 5 M

The routes would probably be packhorse tracks rather than roads, and the Halifax route would cross over the valley and climb over the hill via Salter Rake Gate and past Mankinholes to London Road. The Todmorden route might have been the same down to the valley, then would go left and go up and down on the valley side a few times. Reddyshore Scout Gate goes towards Rochdale, and the route would probably continue along Calderbrook Road. Burnley is a puzzle, as the 1850 six-inch map does not show a direct route over the moors.

There are no arrows to indicate directions.
