Giants Quoiting Stone

Period: Bronze Age

NGR Easting: 220885

NGR Northing: 468333

Description: Prehistoric standing stone.

A large slab of local grey stone standing 3.2m high, with sides of 1.2m and 0.4m. It is used by cattle as a rubbing post.

The stone shares the same name as another lying some 350m to the SSW. Kermode's List of Antiquities (1930) attaches the name to both sites, although the name appears today to have been forgotten locally in respect of this site, in favour of the Big Stone Field.
