Standing Stone / Menhir

This site is of disputed antiquity. If you have any information that could help clarify this site's authenticity, please post below or leave a post in the forum.
There are two stones here, one which the EH record on Pastscape suggests could be prehistoric,
at SE 65519330

and the other which is said to be 'naturally placed'.
at SE 65539339.

It would surely seem unlikely, given their extreme closeness, that the second is "of no significance" (as a 1974 visit apparently concluded).
