Getting Here

The forgotten standing stone of Agra Woods
The forgotten standing stone of Agra Woods

Take the same directions as if you’re visiting the multiple-ringed Agra Woods petroglyph (West Agra 8).  From just below here, keep to the woodland side, and follow the line of tall drystone walling along to the east for a hundred yards or more, keeping your eyes peeled for the stone in question, just in front of a nice oak tree.  You can’t really miss it!

Archaeology & History

Not too far away from the scattered cluster of West Agra’s cup-and-ring stones, can be found this very bulky six foot tall standing stone, near the edge of the old walling on the inner-side of the Agra Woods.  It was rediscovered by Paul Hornby on a Northern Antiquarian outing in May 2011, who told it to be “quite a massive thing!”  (I’ve yet to visit the site so can’t give my personal impressions of the site)
