|Description ||Newly recovered Cuckoo Stone, with it's 'head' back in place!|
|Do you reckon this is the 'real' Cuckoo Stone, Paul? As opposed to the one nearby that is listed in your book? Or are there two?!|
|A few yards off the Bronte footpath, this is one of two standing stones about 10 yards apart from each other. One of them (highlighted with the broken top) was rediscovered at the end of July 2005 by myself and Mark Davey. Both stones are less than four feet tall, and are outliers for a previously undiscovered burial mound a short distance away to the north (which I located a couple of years ago during one of my regular off-the-path moorland forays). Anomalous electromagnetic radiation readings (between 10 and 60 times above background) were found running from the tomb towards the two monoliths. Ley-hunters take note!|
|The one described in my book has at long last regained its ancient companion with this one. Get up and have a look (that's assuming some bugger aint knocked it down again). They were undoubtedly a pair and seem to distinctly mark out the tomb behind them, almost like 'entrance stones'. |
