(NS 7910 9377) Ladies' Rock (NR)

OS 25" map (1942)

"Closely adjoining to this valley, on the south, is a small rocky pyramidal mount called 'the Ladies Hill', when the fair ones of the court took their station to behold these feats". (Tournaments, etc.)

W Nimmo 1817

This appears to be a natural outcrop of rock, now the centre of a modern churchyard. Correctly positioned and shown.
