Stockton Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir

Stockton Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) by Baron Woodwose This photograph appeared in the Lowestoft Journal, 13th July 1935 and shows the menhir being lifted from its original location preparatory to road widening operations. It stood on the land of Mr. B. Edge of Stockton Old Hall. He supervised its removal assisted by Major S. E. Glendenning of the Norfolk Archeaological Society. When removed from the ground the stone was found to be six feet long and weighed approximately 3.5 tons. NB apologies for the poor quality of this photo! The original was VERY worn and I've enhanced it the best I could! B.W.
