The Elloe Stone
The Elloe Stone
"In a green lane, in this parish, stands a small stone, called Elloe Stone, which gives name to this hundred; it stands about the middle of it. This was formerly the main road across the country, now called Old Spalding Gate.

Old men (says Stukeley) tell us that here was formerly kept an annual court, I suppose a convention sub dis, of the adjacent parts, to treat of their general affairs : a wood hard by is called Elloe Stone Wood."
