HEDGELEY EAST BOLTON
NU 11 NW NU 11961531
Jenny's Lantern,
5/233
on hilltop 1.4
kilometre south-
west of East
Bolton Farm
II

Ruin of eyecatcher incorporating shepherd's cottage, probably mid-C18.
Squared stone. Rectangular plan. South wall shows door and window openings
of single-storey cottage which had pent roof against taller flat-coped wall
to rear; coping stepped down on left return. Right return fallen.

A prominent landscape feature, its form probably based on Crawley Tower
(q.v.); associated with local legend of a shepherd's wife displaying a
lantern to guide her husband home over the fells after his evenings in an
Eglingham hostelry; one evening however he fell into a bog and drowned.
