Swinburne Standing Stone (Nov 2007)3D Model
This standing stone can be found on private farmland S of Great Swinburne, Northumuberland.
At 3.3 x 1.4 x 0.6 metres it is thought to be the tallest standing stone in Northumberland and belongs to the Neolithic / Bronze Age period. Possible cup marks are visible on the N and S faces. Referenced ‘Swinburne Standing Stone’ on the Beckensall Archive (BA), this monument was added to ERA by NADRAP in 2008. BA describes:
‘The north face has four ovals and 14 other cups, some small; there are two prominent cups on the south face and 10 faint cups.’
