William Crossing's Memorial Box at Duck's Pool

Visited here yesterday while putting out my new set of 6 stamps (Man Made On The Moor), and while the container and book are in pristine condition, the stamp itself has come apart. I noted the contact number in the book....but subsequently lost it. Feel free to pass on this information to whoever it...

I have just 'googled' Grant's Pot and it would appear that one of the original 15 letterbox stamps was sited there.
