Shovel Stone - Thursday, Apr 24, 2008
|Shovel Stone was a bit of a disappointment. I'd seen it on a list of Tors, seemingly verified by a photo, but the grid reference given there is nowhere near the rock in the photo. I think the author of that site is a little confused. I found this stone 400 feet east of the given coordinates, much, much closer to the stone shown on the 25000 scale map.|
