|Description ||Mystery stone? I was out walking my dog in the village of Rivington in Lancashire where I live and came across an unusual hollowed out stone in the shape of a coffin. I'm not sure what it is, but I've been a keen metal detectorist for many years and have seen a lot of stones including the Rivington Cup & Ring stone before it was discovered by archaeologists, but this stone is a mystery to me. Can anybody help identify the stone and give me some info as to what it could be? I don't think it as been recorded. |
|Anyone know what this is?|
|Nothing recorded on the National Monuments Record for it... do you have a grid reference? road name? anything to help pin it down on a map? To me it looks something like a trough, or if stood up right, a surround for a well, as seen in many Derbyshire Wells.|
