An upright igneous rock set in concrete standing in a field. This Bronze Age megalith stands in an area where remains of burial pits and the debris of mesolithic flint working have been found. In the late Middle Ages it took on new meaning and significance when it became seen as marking the spot where Sir Robert Umfraville and the Earl of Westmoreland, with 140 spearmen and 300 bowmen, defeated 4000 Scots in 1415. The stone fell down in 1890 and was re-erected in 1924.
