Provisional notes

I noticed this stone as I was driving north from Glaisdale Rigg. I saw it from the road and thought that it may have been an old gatepost, a boundary stone or at best a moorland cross.
I'd never noticed this stone before nor can I remember ever reading anything about it but a stone of this size, over 2 metres, can't have gone un-noticed and unrecorded.
There is a second stone 50 metres to the north.
