The boundary stone is prominent on the top of Adam Seat. The fence line now misses the stone, curving by to the north. The north/south faces of the stone are marked:-
L / H
in neatly serifed letters about 6 inches high.
The boundary is on a parish boundary between Longsleddale and Shap; but the boundary distinction is between landowners to north, Lowther in Shap Rural, and south, Harrison in Longsleddale.
