'Millennium stone' Navestock

At the hamlet called Horseman Side a giant boulder of ferricrete (210cm x 150cm x 60cm) sits on a concrete plinth by the road. It is was placed here in 2000 to mark the new millennium. The boulder was excavated from a neighbouring field.

Although the engraving on the plinth states that it is a puddingstone, it is, in fact a ferricrete, which is an iron-cemented gravel.
