4. Did you know that….

More than half of the stone rows in Great Britain are in National Parks.

North Ings stone row is one of 157 rows situated within a National Park.

    The engraved cross on the North Ings stone row may be a boundary marker for Whitby Abbey. The Doc Brown blog shows a boundary marker with the Robert Chaloner initials and a date of perambulation. The Chaloners acquired the lands of Whitby Abbey at the dissolution. In Fylingdales boundary markers of Whitby Strand are a C with an enclosed cross, possibly a statement of the new ownership making use of an existing inscribed boundary marker.

    1. Thank you Roger. There is a similar stone in the Butterdon Hill stone row known as Hobajons Cross. The cross was probably added by the Abbot of Buckfast to denote abbey lands. There is a map of 1478 showing the cross, boundary and stone row.
