Ramshaw, Burnhope

Standing Stones


The County Durham Sites & Monuments Register, citing "NY94NE6 BMC, Ordnance Survey, 1957" as its source, describes this site as:

"a standing stone, roughly rectangular in section, 0.3m. x 0.2m. at the base and 1.2m. high, located near the summit of a ridge overlooking Burn Hope. To the southwest lie three boulders at distances of 8m, 15m. and 18m. from the standing stone. In their present positions there is no evidence that they ever formed part of a stone circle."
The map reference given here is accurate to within 1km.
