Wade's Stone (South)

Standing Stone / Menhir


Wade's Stone (South) is visible from the A174 at East Barnby. There is no public footpath. We parked opposite the entrance to the Training Centre (on Wade's Lane) and accessed through the gate that leads to a path that runs beside the Training Centre.
Wades Stone is on a slight rise in the field in front of you. His vital statistics are similar to his brother 1km away 2m X 1m. He is not as weathered as his brother but does have one deep ?libation channel running from top to 1/4 way down.

Got to see this this morning. Impressive, and with its sparkly bits slightly reminiscent of the Stonehenge bluestones. We got there just as the farmer's wife was closing the gate so were able to ask if we could walk over to see it. No problem, though she said we'd better leave our bags in the car in case the sheep thought we'd come to feed them!

The packing stones at the base are no longer there but at least the stone is now back in position.
