Stanedge Pole

Local nameStanedge Pole
LocationSheffield, United Kingdom

Stanedge Pole also known as Stanage Pole is a landmark on Hallam Moors close to Stanage Edge in South Yorkshire, England. Standing at a height of 438 metres, it marks the border between Derbyshire and South Yorkshire and can be seen for several miles around.

A pole has stood on the site since at least 1550. Many initials have been carved into the rock that supports it, and five can be identified as initials of the parish road surveyors who renewed the pole when needed. "T.C. 1550", "H.W. 1581", "T.M. 1631", "H.H. 1697" and "F.N. 1740" are the marks of the parish surveyors and the date the pole was renewed. The pole is a way marker on a medieval packhorse road known as the Long Causeway or Long Causey which runs west from Sheffield.
