Jenny Bradley stands beside the ancient drovers road of Thurkilsti and Rudland Rigg (now part of the Cleveland Way)
- it is dwarfed by a tall boundary stone which marks the beginning of the Ingleby Estate.

Jenny Bradley has a broken shaft set into a medieval stone base - sadly, the carved writings are now indecipherable.

"The boundary stone has SIR W FOWELS cut into its north side with F 1838 on the south - in 1609 the estate was bought
by Sir David Foulis, a Scot who came to England with James I. Sir William was the 8th baronet and after his death in 1845
his daughter took the estate in marriage to the Sidneys, Lords De L'Isle and Dudley."
