Cork Stone On Stanton Moor And A Stone Pillar Box In Horsley



Cork Stone on Stanton Moor


On Stanton Moor there are a number of these blocks of granite. They are the harder rock that has remained as the plateau was worn down through the ages. Cork Stone is 15 feet high and has iron foot rests driven into it. It is also covered with graffiti, accumulated over many years.
