The Goggleby Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Its a whopper. A great big fist of a stone, now standing in concrete shoes. You don't really get a sense of its deep immensity until you're right up close. Its footprint is dressed squarely but the looming bulk of it seems to rise like a blobby undressed mass as if the builders lost interest in cutting any more of it half way up.

Unlike nearby Kemp Howe, its not pink.
