Turning Stone and Robin Hoods Mark

Rocking Stone


"On the declivity of a hill on Ashover Common is a rocking stone, called by the people 'Robin Hood's Mark' which measures 26 feet in circumference, and from its extraordinary position evidently not only appears to have been a work of art, but to have been placed with great ingenuity. About 200 yards to the north of this is a singularly-shaped rock, called the 'Turning stone', in height 9 feet, supposed by Mr Rooke to have been a rock idol..."
