The Dipping Stone
The Dipping Stone
Described in the Ancient Monument Schedule as a "Wayside and Boundary Cross", the Dipping Stone lies just off a public footpath below the end of Whaley Moor and offers views to Chinley Churn (SK0383) and beyond that the Kinder Scout plateau. The similarity to SJ9781 : The Bowstones and SK0090 : Robin Hoods Picking Rods is notable; all three appear to have (or have had) one square shaft and one round.
