|Description ||Hartwith Moor standing stone SE 21223 62733
Un-named standing stone, Standing Stone Hill, North Yorks.
The O.S. map for Nidderdale shows a 'Standing Stone Hill' just north of the village of Hartwith, near Summerbridge. Though any references to an actual
stone are hard to come by.
We followed the public footpath through Highfield farm and asked the farmer
permission to wander his land looking for the stone. He was very amiable and
gave us directions to it, telling us it was off the footpath in the middle
of one of his pastures.
On first sight, it reminded me of a miniature 'Devil's arrow', the huge stones further south-east. It possesses the same curious weathering, a 'fluting' at the top.
The views west to the lofty Pennines are magnificent, the vast Vale of York lays to the east.
