There is a stone located in the garden of Mole End Cottage, which looks from the road to be the right dimensions for a county stone (similar to that in the Parlby Arms Cottage garden), so it is possible that this could be the current location of the stone. Stands in centre of garden beside an ornamental bridge. Grid reference: SX5313870492, image date 2011.
