Tosside, West Riding

I'm not sure if I am standing in North Yorkshire or Lancashire at this point as the post 1974 boundary runs right through the centre of this tiny village, although all of it belongs historically to the West Riding of Yorkshire. The odd situation regarding local authorities seems to stem from the fact that the west half of the village was historically part of the Forest of Gisburn, whereas the eastern half came within Wigglesworth parish. The Dog and Partridge pub is seen here along with what has been described as a fountain, a pump and a memorial. An inscribed stone on this side refers to the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, but the structure looks much older than that.
