Cock Crowing Stone

Natural Rock Feature


The Cock Crowing Stone (not 'Growing' as some people have misread it) stands near the roadside, below West Nab on Meltham Moor. It's impossible to miss due to having it's name painted on in large white letters!

I've got no real further information regarding it's provenance, folklore or otherwise. I'd only heard of it before, as when I found it quite by accident, I thought, "ah, there it is!".

It's name would suggest some kind of sunrise significance. It wouldn't relate to any alignment on West Nab, so something else must be afoot.

If anyone has any further info, I'd love to see it. Maybe Mr Bennett can help on this one?
