The Yarrow Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


This stone was 'turned up by the plough' at the beginning of the 19th Century and underneath were found the remains of human bones. The NSA of 1845 states that the moor on which it was found was also home to around twenty 'large cairns', but all trace of these has gone. The stone is said to mark the graves of two British Christian Chieftains. The inscription, now badly damaged supposedly said;
Here, an everlasting memorial.
In this place
here lie the most famous princes,
Nudus and Dumnogenus, in the tomb - two sons of Liberalis.
