SS 82084116. Standing Stone (4).

Situated at about 405m O.D. in a pasture field. It is a gritstone pillar measuring 1.5m high, 0.6m wide and 0.4 m thick which tapers slightly to a flat top. There is a hollow 2m diameter and 0.2 m deep around its base.

Although obviously used by cattle as a rubbing post before its fall it is most probably a prehistoric standing stone.(5)
