13/77 Ferrands Stone,
approx. 15m east
of Wood Side House


Boundary stone. Dated 1713. Vertical stone slab with arched
head built into rubble stone wall. The arched head is decoratively
engraved with the Ferrand crest, a cubit arm wielding a battle-axe.
Set under is the inscription with good lettering :

"The Soil and Ground
of the way Leading from
hence to Bingley Bridge
belongs to
Benjn.. Ferrand Esqr.

It marks the boundary of the St. Ives estate (q q.v.). The crest
relates to an incident during the Crusades of 1190 at the Seige of
Acre : a Knight named Ferrand, fighting with a battle-axe after a
furious engagement was left for dead by the Saracens. By night time
he rallied and returned to his lines his face cut to shreds and
covered in blood. (Popular legend)
