Skirsgill Standing Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 18.9.10
Fairly easy to access but don't look out for a Lilliput Lane sign as they are now gone!
Directions: Come off the M6 at Junction 40 and take the first exit (if heading north). Then take the first small turning on your left – easy to miss as it looks like a private drive. The road actually leads you to a pretty little business park – it has a well and a thatched cottage! Park in the visitor's car park and look to your left for a long, white walled, single storey building (not pretty!). This is where Lilliput Lane was – empty when I visited. To the right of the building you will see a metal gate (by the fire exit). Immediately next to the gate on the left is a small overgrown area of bushes. Amongst these bushes you will find the standing stone.
It is difficult to see the stone properly due to the bushes but it is worth checking out when in the area.
