Bawd Stone

Natural Rock Feature


From J D Sainter's "Scientific Rambles Round Macclesfield" 1878:

'At a short distance south of Rock Hall, there may be observed on the opposite slope of Hen Cloud a block of gritstone, which upon approaching it, is found to be resting or balanced, in the first place, upon a short edge of rock and then upon two upright and pointed stone pillars about eighteen inches in height, which will constitute a dolmen. At a few yards south of this stone there appears to be the remains of a stone circle, 20 feet in diameter.'
