A fantastic chunk of perfect gritstone buried deep in the woodland behind Whiston in the Churnet Valley. Although occasionally green, it's free standing nature and magical surroundings tend to keep it in top-nick. Best visited in early spring or late autumn when the rock will be cleanest the temperatures most bearable and hopefully, the midges all dead!
