Inscription: I.T.

This is a half-buried reclining stone. The stone appears to mark the north-west boundary of the John Tennant lease marked on the Brailsford 1781 survey, the south-west corner of which is marked by the John Tennant Founder stone by the Beever Dam (see Meer Stone 57). Meer Stone 42 is a third John Tennant stone. John Tennant was born in Hebden in 1733, and died in 1792. When he remarried in 1781 his occupation was recorded as 'miner'.
