Standing beside the ancient drovers road of Thurkilsti and Rutland Rigg ( on the Cleveland Way) can be found the stone known as Jenny Bradley. She stands at the side of the track with a taller companion.
Jenny is set into a medieval stone base and has a broken shaft. Her taller companion is a boundary stone which marks the beginning of the Ingleby Estate.

It always strikes me how vulnerable these sorts of relics really are, and yet how remarkable that they have managed to survive ~ even if broken. I can't believe that their historical worth has always been realised, never mind appreciated. Its probable that it just never made any financial sense in getting of them as opposed to merely ignoring them, as would seem the case for your example.

I love this picture by the contrast between the two stones, in size, color, texture ... and magical light.
