Details

CARLTON HIGHDALE HUNTERS STONE BANK SD 97 NE (north side) 9/71 Hunters Stone - II

Guide stone. Probably medieval. Sandstone monolith. Approximately 2 metres high, and an irregular square on plan. A small cross is incised on one face. The stone marks a remote stretch of an important early route used by monks and drovers travelling between Coverham Abbey and Kettlewell and by hunters pursuing deer in the nearby forest. A local legend tells that when the clock in Hunter's Hall, now called Coverhead Farm strikes twelve the stone turns round.
