The Warrior Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Keep going through Ingoe hamlet, don't take the left fork in the village, it gets tangly. Rather, head along to the right. down the dip, and up to Sandyway Heads farm. The short hardcore track not marked on the map leads to the field with the stone.

The associated tumulus is on the other side of the fence, and looks badly ploughed out, can't be more than 70cm above field level.

Excellent views over the Tyne valley, and further south across to Hexhamshire Common, and to the Simonside hills to the north, though the farmhouse obscures this.

On the way into the hamlet of Ingoe, check out the possible quernstone on the tiny village green by the fork in the road.

The stone itself is deeply grooved stone, like a few of the others in Northumberland.
