NY6536 : Stone by the Maiden Way

taken 6 years ago, 4 km from Townhead, Cumbria, Great Britain

Stone by the Maiden Way
Stone by the Maiden Way
This large, tapering stone just beside the track may have been a route marker when, of course it would have stood upright. There are signs of straight cuts and pittings which could conceivably be prehistoric (or just chisel marks and natural weathering). The view is towards Cuns Fell and the distant northern fells of Lakeland.
