I have land envy

I thought I found a grave this morning out on my hike.  Weirdly randomly placed 'gravestone' half way up the hill in a very windswept gorgeous moorland. Peering at the lichen covered writing I could just about read Lord someone dated 18 something ... 

 When I got home Google wasn't helping, and insisted there were no gravestones on this path.  Round and round I went on google, until finally... I found it.

Not a gravestone, but one of a collection of early 1800's boundary stones.  You can read it here.

 Its grade II listed!
And you can see Earl of Ashbourne mentioned here. And note his family at one point, had almost 8000 acres of Wales. {But lived in Sussex.... ? this is just greedy...} This is the most beautiful area, with the boundary stone overlooking stunning views,  and I am deeply envious of his 8000 acres.

Apparently there are not many pictures of it online, so there you go, Consider yourself lucky to view it ;)
