Weighing in at 3,000kg and standing 2.12 metres high this 4,000 year-old megalith came crashing down in 2008 (due, is said, to a combination of ploughing and people climbing on it). Wade’s Stone, as it is know, is located at East Barnby near Whitby on the North York Moors has now been re-erected with the help of English Heritage, the North York Moors National Park Authority’s Monument Management Scheme and Tees Archaeology and once again stands proud along with its twin megalith some 1.4km away. Access to the stone is not possible although it can be seen from the A174 near East Barnby Outdoor Education Centre.
