Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    The Cork Stone is one of a number of impressive natural outcrops on Stanton Moor. With steps carved into one side, and a few handles hammered into the top, it's easy to climb the curious chunk of weathered sandstone. Getting down, however, is a little harder.

    This stone is a suprise to most on their first visit to the moor as its completley unexpected, tend to be a few people climbing up and down etc, try to time it righ or get there early if you fancy a go unless your willing to queue :)

    There is limited parking in the roadside, meaning you can have a short walk to the Cork Stone. This is a huge lump of gritstone that has stood for thousands of years. Wonder what they called it before corks were invented?There are metal handles which were added in the 19th century to help you climb up it if you fancy a challenge!
