Stone with inscription about Nico Ditch. The text reads: "Part of the Very Ancient Mickle or Great Ditch Sometimes called Nico Ditch Well-known A.D.1200. Extending over Five Miles from here to Ashton Moss and Bounding Several Townships Described fully in Vol. xxiii. of Lancashire and Cheshire Antiquarian Society".
The early evening light shining through the trees gives a special quality to the stone. A stereoscopic version of this picture is in preparation.
