Hatfield forest Puddingstones
These 2 stone are the Hatfield forest Puddingstones, the National Trust have named them the "Speaking Stones", the reason why they are called this is unclear.

It is claimed that they lay on an alignment reaching Wandlebury hillfort near Cambridge. The line also passes through the Leper Stone at Newport, a Saxon moot hill at Mutlow, Littlebury hillfort and two puddingstones either side of the River Cam.

A puddingstone or an erratic boulder is a lump of rock that has been brought down by a glacier.
