taken 3 years ago, 3 km from Grains o' Th' Beck, County Durham, Great Britain

Fence line crossing Benty Hill
Fence line crossing Benty Hill
Benty Hill is a mere levelling of ground along the fence line defining now the Cumbria / County Durham Boundary. The stone in front of the third fence post is one of a remarkable series which marked the old boundary which at the time would have been between Westmorland (camera side of fence) and Yorkshire. The stones are all deeply cut with sequential numbers, the one in view being 26.
(Stone 27 is also in view distantly; it's where the fence line seems to end against shadowed heather.)
