Visited this stone on 8 March 2015 for the first time since 2008. Then I had to clear a lot of nettles, thistles, dockens etc to take decent photos. The field has now been ploughed and sown with a new crop quite close to the stone, but its appearance is very similar to how it looks in the earliest photos on here, apart from the giant wind turbine situated a short distance to the north. The nearby Earlseat Farmhouse has been refurbished, extended and re-occupied. Posted by Trajan

The farm was being renovated so no one to ask, so I went into the field anyway. The stone was a bit over grown with nettles and the like but you could get an appreciation of it. hamish Posted by hamish

Sandstone stone in field of wheat.
Permission asked for at farm - nice woman had an idea we might be looking for stone...
First impressions pretty dissappointing, but good cup marks - well 3 at least that I thought... spotted small in one corner and as ever the views are pretty.

This stone is a block of sandstone, around 4-1/2 feet tall, oriented approximately E-W. There are no visible cup marks on it. nickbrand Posted by nickbrand
