Although this is not really a Cowling related item it is
something for over 10 years I have always been
interested in due to an interesting story that Ray
Thornton a local walker told me of a memorial stone on
Pinhaw Moor showing the place were beacon man Robert
Wilson was found dead in 1805.
Well a big thank you to Ray for taking the time out to
re-visit the stone and this time he had his digital
camera with him and emailed me the photographs below.
The stone reads.
Hear was found dead the
body of Robert Wilson one
of The Beacon Gards who
Died Jan 29 1809 Aged
