old map:- OS County Series (Wmd 33 4)

County Series maps of Great Britain, scales 6 and 25 inches to 1 mile, published by the Ordnance Survey, Southampton, Hampshire, from about 1863 to 1948.
The boundary crosses the road here; it continues south east along the road side for a way.

observation:-
Stone slab in the hedgerow, marked with a vertical line, lettered:-
SELSIDE / LONGSLEDDALE
The present day (2004) civil parish adjoining Longsleddale here is Whitwell and Selside.

When signposts and suchlike were removed during World War II, this boundary stone was removed too. It was placed, face down, over a water tank at Dale End by Geoff Waine. It was only by luck that someone asked him about it after the war so that it was rediscovered.
Waine, Geoff: 28.3.2004: conversation
