The Biddle Stones
The Biddle Stones
The stone on the right is a medieval cross base cut with a deep socket similar to two others in Alnham churchyard. That on the left is uncut and of unknown provenance. The stones stand on the south side of the track leading to Biddlestone Chapel. The surrounding forest had been recently felled and wood debris was still burning. The parkland visible below the road to the south is the likely location of the deserted village of Biddlestone with which it is possible these stones had some now forgotten connection.
