The Andle Stone

Natural Rock Feature


Came up the road wondering if we'd find it, but it's unmistakeable. The day & landscape were beautiful & the Andle Stone sitting happily in it all. DishBench climbed it & reported the view from the top "not much different" from below - but confessed later he only said that so the rest of us wouldn't feel left out. Apparently it's amazing. The metal handholds look Victorian however, and the fact that the first one seems to have rusted through & snapped right off did not inspire confidence...
The opposite side of the stone (opposite to the hand/footholds) has chiseled into it a dedication to Wellington? & other big military hero I think (I didn't write it down). Why? Does anybody know?
