On the 6" O.S. map of the Hunderthwaite–Lunedale–Mickleton area surveyed 1854 and published 1856, Robin Hood's Stone is indicated by the side of a road c. 1.7 km WNW of Grassholme, which now belongs to county Durham but was formerly part of the North Riding of Yorkshire.[1] The name of the stone is omitted on the 6" map of the Lunedale area published 1895 (surveyed 1891-92) but is found on the 1920 map of the area (surveyed 1912-13).[2] This stone appears to have escaped the notice of Dobson & Taylor[3] and all other Robin Hood researchers. A Google search done in May 2016 yielded no results.
