The Tow Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


This stone was originally at NJ 7010 3352 - the 1867 Ordnance Survey Name Book described it as 3 feet high and 2 feet square. Perhaps they had the wrong stone - in 1903 someone else recorded it to be 6 ft high and 6ft round.

The RCAHMS have found it safe and sound in 2002 behind Knowley farmsteading at NJ6993 3334, where it's having a lie-down. They measured the granite stone at 2.5m in length.
