Giants Quoiting Stone

Period: Bronze Age

NGR Easting: 220788

NGR Northing: 467995

Description: Prehistoric standing stone.

The monolith comprises a rather pointed stone, 2.5m high, 1.1m wide and 0.5m thick. The stone was incorporated into a garden when surrounding houses were built in 1894. There is no trace of other features nearby, although there are several outcrops of rock immediately to the south. In its modern setting the stone is not particularly visible, but even prior to this its position part way up an east-facing slope would have mitigated against its prominence as a landmark.
