Sandy Lane Standing Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


SMR No.3292 Standing Stone
This is a standing stone beside a gate on Sandy lane. The stone is marked on the O.S. map of 1893 and stands 80cm high, 30cm wide and 30cm deep. The stone is narrow at the top, but wider at the bottom where it is 50cm wide and deep. The stone is in front of and probably supporting a low wall. The gate across Sandy Lane may have fastened to the stone. The standing stone has slight V-shaped grooves on the path side, but there are no traces of how a gate would be suspended from the stone. The stone is in fair condition.
