A small stone dating from about 1791. George Fletcher had previously been the Duke of Devonshire's local mining agent, and this is one of three of his stones found in this area. See Meer Stone 17 and Meer Stone 53. Meer Stone 41 and Meer Stone 64 are also George Fletcher stones, but on a different lease. This stone is actually in the Hebden Liberty - see Meer Stone 53. According to Raistrick, George Fletcher took several meers along the Bycliffe vein in Grassington Moor, and followed the vein eastward into Hebden Moor.
