The Bronte Way County Boundary 1985
Yorkshire-Lancashire Ancient County Boundary, inscribed "HC". The Yorkshire-Lancashire boundary around here was moved half a mile east in 1618. This stone stands very close to the old line of the boundary on the natural watershed. It is unlikely, however, that the stone shown here dates back so far - it looks eighteenth or nineteenth century. HC may be for one of the Cunliffes of Wycollar Hall. Text Steven Wood
