Cammon Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


"At 1314ft is a really ancient boulder set up the east side of the rigg road the Cammon Stone from the Celtic 'cam' meaning bank stone. On its leaning side is a Hebrew inscription HALLELUJAH. Was the source of much controversy. it was thought to be Phoenician but can be compared to the Hebrew lettering on the Bransdale Mill inscription. It is most likely the work of Rev. W. Strickland a 19th century vicar of Ingleby".
