Robin Cross boundary stone MYD34856 (c) YDNPA, 2023

A roughly shaped boundary stone dated 1866. It is approximately 1 metre high and inscribed on its east face “S ED…ED”. On the south face, in crude lettering it has “EAP 1866”. It was erected by the Earl-Drax family of Ellerton Abbey to mark the boundary of Ellerton Abbey Parish.


In Leyburn 100 metres north of the market place take the minor road signposted Grinton. The boundary stone is about 4 miles from Leyburn at the highest point on the road across the moor. It is on the left hand side just as the wall turns sharply away from the road.
