Head Stone

Natural Rock Feature


The Head Stone is a natural rock outcrop that from some angles looks a little like a head on shoulders. A clear view can be had from the A57, west of Sheffield on the hillside above the road.

It can be reached by follwing the public footpath opposite the farmhouse, down over the bridge in the woods and up the steep hillside. The views to the west of the stone are lovely.

It would be reasonable to suspect that the route of the A57 is pretty old, and the Head Stone may have been an important marker on the route.

The Hordron Edge stone circle is about two n' a half miles to the west.
