Marker post on Hoar Edge
'The ‘tree post’ near Random Farm on Titterstone, known locally as the ‘Three-Forked Pole’, supposedly marks the meeting point of three parishes on the top of the hill. Every 30 years or so the pole decays and a new one is put in its place. No one knows when the first pole was erected although photographs record one early replacement ceremony in the 1920s.'
