Robinson's Cross stands just beside a pretty little road which runs from Osmotherley to Hawnby,
about a mile south-east of Chequers, once an ancient drovers inn, now tea-rooms.

"The boundary stone is one of a long line of estate stone markers stretching across Snilesworth moorland.
The beautifully inscribed M stands for Manners, the family name of the Duke of Rutland who for ten generations
held Helmsley and a large area of these moors before they were bought by the Duncombes in 1695."
