Old way marker.

Not sure if this is an old Drovers’ way marker or a ‘Standing Stone’ that has been bypassed by the track.

From Wikipedia:
A drovers’ road, drove [road] or droveway is a route for moving livestock on foot from one place to another, such as to market or between summer and winter pasture Many drovers’ roads were ancient routes of unknown age; others are known to date back to medieval times

    1. Most kind of you and yes the area being now quite isolated is perfect for contemplation. Hope to get back there when the snow arrives, the advantages of having a Landrover.

    1. It’s in an area that has so much history associated with it.
      Neolithic, Early Bronze Age, Roman and certainly Medieval; there is even a section of what could be a Roman road that has reappeared after being covered in moorland Heather for hundreds of years.
      The Yorkshire Moor can be bleak but it wasn’t always so.
      On a quiet day, just standing and trying to connect with all that has gone before is quite special.
