The Mare and Foal

Standing Stones


Visited 21.9.10
Easy to spot on the B6318 which runs parallel to Hadrian's Wall – just west of the Twice Brewed pub. I parked on the verge of the minor road next to the site and delicately hopped over the barbed wire fence. It is only a short, but boggy walk up to the stones. The standing stones are about 1.5 metres tall and stand close together. After spending a day looking at Roman sites it made a nice change to visit a really 'old stone'! Despite the closeness of the road this site felt quite remote.
Easy to access and well worth a visit when in the area.
