NZ8214 : Wade's Stone

taken 12 years ago, near to Goldsborough, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Wade's Stone
Wade's Stone
To quote from English Heritage's website: "A Bronze Age standing stone, originally one of two, the other no longer survives. It is roughly cut into rectangular shape which tapers slightly towards the top and leans a little to the north west. It is 1.5 metres high and 0.7 by 0.5 metres in section. On the south face the letters JS and ES have been inscribed. The monument is scheduled. There is another possible "Wades Stone" at NZ 81 SW 2." I believe this latter reference means NZ830130.
