Photograph of meer stone 55 - Grassington Moor

(Click photograph for a larger image)

Location: This stone lies on the Castaway Vein about 480 metres from John Young Gate, at a bearing of about 40°.

Latitude: 54.100219 Longitude: -1.963463

NGR: SE 02487 67150

Inscription: ? I & C O

This is a 60 cm high stone, the top left hand corner of which has broken off, so much of the inscription is missing, and the C and the & are speculative. Its position seems to be at the north-east corner of a Bagshaw meer shown the Brailsford 1781 survey, so it could indicate a later holder of one of the leases abutting that corner.
