Boundary stone. Medieval, restored mid C20. For the Fountains Abbey estates. Gritstone. Base approximately 40 x 80 cm and 50 cm high; the shaft approximately 1.5 m tall is set into a square socket in the top and concreted in. No visible inscription but the upper 80 cm of the SW face is decorated with 6 notches on either edge. The stone stands at the junction of five townships and was important as a boundary stone as well as a way marker between the Malham Moor sheep pasture and the route to Fountains Abbey. In 1947 the base was built into the south side of the Weets Gate wall but was moved in 1955 to its present position; the shaft may be a replacement but it is very weathered.
