I found this stone by sight as I was travelling S out of Twynholm. On passing Ingleston farm I noticed a large stone on the right side at the top of a hill.
I couldn't find any online references to this stone but found it marked on my OS landranger map.
The Ingle Stone is a massive erratic measuring around 10x10x8 feet. There is a small moss-covered stone resting on top of the Ingle Stone. It is no wonder that the Ingle Stone has not been moved and has given the farm it's name due to its prominence in the landscape.
