This is a 60 cm high stone overlooking the dry valley. It had broken into two pieces, but is currently re-erected. It probably marks the south-east corner of the holding held by Minikin & Co. on the Burnt Ling vein, which appears on the Brailsford survey of 1781. Minikin was not an uncommon name in the area at the time.
