This stone is in the Dales Country Museum collection in Hawes, some 28 km from its rightful home, and was originally part of the Yorkshire Dales Mining Museum collection. It is almost definitely associated with William Bagshaw of Coats Hall in Derbyshire, who was granted a lease in 1774 for 21 years by William, Duke of Devonshire on Grassington out Moor.
