This stone seems far to close to Moseley Height i would think its an outlier to the great Circle that once stood in the field behind it. treehugger-uk Posted by treehugger-uk

A 'possible' standing stone of the Bronze age.
Beware if you visit it - it's right by the side of a busy road, at the top of a hill, on a slight bend! Great views though :-)
The words 'Stump Cross' are just visible at the base of the stone.

Very close to the site of Mosley Height. On the roadside embankment right next to the wall is a standing stone about 3 feet in height
