Black Dub Monument, Crosby Ravensworth Fell

  • Description

    "A most unusual object to be found in the middle of a remote piece of moorland. It was placed here in the middle of the 19th Century by John Bland a self-taught sculptor and resident of Reagill. He was also responsible for the [[2206168]] and carved many statues in his own garden at home [[2576848]] Quite why John Bland felt the need to commemorate Charles II stopping here is not known but he seemed to have been a bit of an eccentric. Less than a kilometre away to the east is the Kings Spring which (today at least) was emitting a good flow of water, unlike Black Dub. Perhaps the monument is in the wrong place?"
