On the Rossendale Way in this part, there are 2 boundary stones. As you head towards Hades hill going south from Sharneyford, it is possible to see the taller of the two, Calderdale boundary stone, from quite a fair distance.

To the right of the boundary stone which is marked S & T you meet a broken down 4 barred gate which you cross. This is on the way to Hades Hill. On your right is the Bacup boundary stone.

This Boundary stone is literally yards away from the Calderdale stone. The Rossendale way keeps to the left of the boundary wall.
|The Bacup Boundary Stone, Not sure what the 42 means!|
The weather was absolutely clear today. On previous trips over the top it has been absolutely dire. The rest of the route goes over Middle Hill and Brown Wardle hill, heading south. It is quite a long stage.
This is my link to the Rossy way
The no.42 on the Bacup boundary stone simply means that it is boundary stone no.42 - each stone is numbered consecutively no.1 to no.blah - not sure what the last stone is numbered at.ReplyDelete
