Summary : Dipping or Plague Stone-10th century or later base stone of twin boundary crosses.
More information : SJ 99458172 THE DIPPING STONE (NR) or PLAGUE STONE (NR) (1)

The rectangular stone is 4' long and from 21"-32" wide, and is considered to be the base stone of a pair of Saxon crosses, probably not later than the 10th. c. Similar base stones are part of the Bow Stones (SJ 98 SE 10), Robin Hoods Picking Rods (SK 09 SW 1) at Chisworth, and the Great Stone at Stretford (Lancs). This group of crosses were probably boundary marks. Cox (a) suggests those of ecclesiastical Divisions and Green (b) those of Danish and English Districts. (2)
