'Breckon Howe' round barrow, Sleights Moor

A Scheduled Monument in Eskdaleside cum Ugglebarnby, North Yorkshire

Boundary Stone at Breckon Howe

Uploader's Comments

It marks the boundary between the parishes of Eskdaleside-cum-Ugglebarnby & Goathland.
The south face is inscribed:
“Goathland boundary determined at York Assizes 1813”. This was the result of an action brought by the Lord of the Manor of Sleights against the Lord of the Manor of Goathland to determine the boundary, and thus the extent of the sheep grazing rights.
