HEDGELEY EAST BOLTON NU 11 NW NU 11961531 Jenny's Lantern, 5/233 on hilltop 1.4 kilometre south- west of East Bolton Farm II

Ruin of eyecatcher incorporating shepherd's cottage, probably mid-C18. Squared stone. Rectangular plan. South wall shows door and window openings of single-storey cottage which had pent roof against taller flat-coped wall to rear; coping stepped down on left return. Right return fallen.

A prominent landscape feature, its form probably based on Crawley Tower (q.v.); associated with local legend of a shepherd's wife displaying a lantern to guide her husband home over the fells after his evenings in an Eglingham hostelry; one evening however he fell into a bog and drowned.
