This photo was taken in 1975. It collapsed around December 8 1988, leaving a sizeable pile of rubble.

Bugger...Was there in 1983. Spent the whole day just squatting waiting for it to fall....If only I'd been more persistent.
Great picture GN. Sad to hear of it's fate.

It defied erosion and gravity for all these years. It was a sandstone stack on a thin neck of rubbish mudstone. Like you I thought it was ready to go back in ’75! Sad loss of this little known geological marvel….

Looks like the Bridestone...

We went past on the main road in November 1988, but weren't allowed to go and see it, were told it would be there for many years and we would get our chance....
