    Stone Row, Pleasington

    Just beyond Black Hill Delf on the Yellow Hills above Pleasington we find -

    Here a 200 yard length of Cyclopean single stone walling or stone row runs over the brow of the hill, and I know of no other example of this type of walling in the surrounding district, the nearest being above Dimpenley on the heights above Fence that I know to be Mediaeval in origin. Other comparable Mediaeval walling can be found below the Fanny Grey Inn above Salterforth. Yet something tells me that we are looking at an older division of land here, some ancient boundary maybe.
