Cat Stone

Natural Rock Feature


This is the largest of the four cat stones that lie along the Eastern edge of the moor, so it kinda carries the 'Cat Stone' label.
Cat is derived from Cath, meaning battle. All four stones carry dates and some have coronets.
Along with the Cat Stone pictured, inscribed 'E.I.N 1831', the other easy stone to spot is the Duke of York stone, a hundred yards or so NE of Stanton Moor North.
