Take the minor road east out of Shap which takes you past the cemetery and over the M6.
The stone is pretty much unmisable on the right hand side of the road - it's a huge lump of rock.
I dread to think how much it must weigh?
One of the many stones in the area with the title Thunder Stone.
This fella is a great big Shap granite boulder perched on the edge of a small quarry just beside the Shap to Crosby Rasvensworth road.
Shap Granite is a beautiful stone either polished or raw. Its pink colour comes from the feldspar within it's matrix and the large feldspar crystals, plagioclase feldspar I think.
