This stone lies adjacent to the roadside wall, on the moor side. It is a dressed gritstone pillar with rounded top which has been re-erected recently. The side facing the road is inscribed D / B B / 1856. the left hand 'B' is reversed. D stands for Derbyshire, the Bs for Beeley and Brampton. The stone marks the boundary between Beeley and Brampton parishes (previously townships/liberties until 1868) and the stone was added to a pre-existing boundary line in 1856. There are further stones on the same line, some of which are earlier. Two of the stones on the moor, associated with the boundaries of Beeley, Baslow and/or Brampton are also dated 1856. (2)
