Monument record MDR10196 - Limestone slab uncovered by ploughing in Hassop Park

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A limestone slab was uncovered by ploughing and noted during a survey by John Barnatt in 1993. There is a possibility that this may once have been an upright standing stone and therefore of prehistoric date. However, it is probably either a later feature, such as a stock rubbing post, or even a fresh slab brought up by the plough from the underlying bedrock. (1) Photographic record. (2,3)
