Out & About …

… on the North York Moors, or wherever I happen to be.

Standing stone on the south slope of Roseberry

Volunteering all day with the National Trust on Roseberry. Path clearing and repairing a dry stone wall. The stones are getting heavier.

I grabbed this photo on the walk home. I can find no listing for the standing stone. It’s of dressed sandstone and stands at around the 230m contour on the southern flank of Roseberry, just next to a field boundary.

I don’t think it’s a gate post. There is no trace of its mate and it seems too squat to me to be a gate post.

The broken ground beyond is the result of subsidence from the early 20th-century ironstone mining activities.

In the distance is Capt. Cook’s Monument of Easby Moor.
