Hurl Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Haven't been able to find out any history of this one yet. It stands, set in a rough stone base, so may well be of modern origin, although it may be re(z)erected.

A tall thin stone, over 10ft tall, it leans or points quite heavily. Views over towards The Cheviots to the West and Hepburn Woods to the East.

Of notable mention is a bit of modern architecture just oevr the hill - The Hurlstone Tower was built in 2000 by the local landowner and is a round 3 storey castle looking folly.
