Ancient Stone
Standing stone on Gardom's Edge reputedly to be 4000 years old.
The flat sloping side is said only to be lit fully on mid-summers day,(this was when it was first erected and the tilt of the earth was different from what it is today!) The stone takes on different forms as you walk round it, see:-SK2773 : Ancient Stone SK2773 : Ancient Stone
