According to a transcript of the document, ‘Perambulation of Baslow Boundary 1721‘, the Hurkling Stone is located on the boundary of the Manor of Baslow, and it bears the inscription XMB (or is it a cross inscription followed by MB?).

The Hurkling Stone stands at the junction of the present day parish and district boundaries, by two ancient walls. It is on White Edge moor south west of Lady’s cross.
