Face Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


The Face Stone is a bit of a mystery. When you read about it you will see it described in non-commital terms like 'celtic look' or 'celtic type'.
The stone is mentioned in the first preamble of the Duncombe Estate (1642) and therefore predates the erection of the majority of the moorland waymarking stones in the early 1700's.

The stone sits beside the Cleveland Way and whatever it's origin, it's a lovely, scary stone, well worth a visit.
