The War Stone
The War Stone
This erratic boulder stone has been placed on a plinth beside Warstone Lane and Warstone Lane Cemetery. The inscription on the plinth reads:
"The War Stone - This felsite boulder was deposited near here by a glacier during the Ice Age; being at one time used as a parish boundary mark, it was known as the Hoar Stone of which the modern War stone is a corruption."
