Rudston Monolith (Standing Stone / Menhir) by Rune The plaque at the foot of Rudston Monolith says,
"The Monolith standing almost 26ft above ground level was hewn and brought here in the late Neolithic period possibly 2000BC.
It consists of a slab of moor grit conglomerate as found in a widespread area of the Cleveland Hills inland of Whitby."
It's the first time I've seen any "offerings" here in over 15 years of infrequent visits, but I did once see him without his hat on and very much better he looked, too.
