Details of stone on Pastscape

[Area centred ST 41805400] Standing Stone in this field Not located. (1)
Mile & half S. of Shute Shelve and a mile due east of Lower Weare, in the fourth field from the highroad to Bridgewater, on the right bank of the Cheddar Water: the stone stands in a slight hollow. No longer upright, its longer side is 2'6" above ground x 18" below x 9" thick. Too small for a rubbing post, it may have been set up as a boundary mark. (2-3)
The stone cannot be located. It may have been removed or overlaid by material dredged from the River Yeo. (4)
