NZ0682 : The Poind & His Man

taken 10 years ago, near to Middleton Bank Top, Northumberland, England

The Poind & His Man
The Poind & His Man
Old name given to the standing stone and an adjacent round cairn of Late Neolithic or early Bronze Age date situated on a prominent position on the top of a small hill. The cairn was partly opened in the 19th century and a stone coffin or cist was found within it. The standing stone, originally one of two, is 6m south of the cairn. A second stone which is thought to have stood to the north-east was reportedly moved to Wallington Hall in the early 18th century NZ0384 : Standing stone, Wallington

The cairn and the standing stones were first mentioned in 1552 when the Order of the Marches, a law code for the border region between England and Scotland, said that 'watch be kept at the stones'.

A natural sandstone outcrop called NZ0682 : Hunter's Stone can be seen behind.
