T' Owd Gentlman's Grave: A Solitary Grave Down The Hillside Below Oldfield, Brontë Country


I'll rest where the rolling rock comes to rest.

The grave of James Mitchell who died in 1835, aged 72. He was the proprietor of Oldfield House, Oldfield. The legend has it that he instructed his servants to roll a large stone down the hill and told them that he wanted to be buried wherever the stone came to rest.
