Thurrock College Sarsen Stone, GRAYS, Thurrock District, TQ635788, Potential Local Geological Site
A fine sarsen stone (1.3 metres by 1.1 metres in size) is standing upright on the grass in front of Thurrock College. Until recently, the stone was lying flat on the paving by the college entrance. According to a former lecturer at the college it was found during nearby road construction work in the late 1960s. The stone has fine mammillated surfaces on both sides.
The stone is on land owned by Thurrock College and therefore, for security reasons, permission to examine the stone should be obtained from the college reception.
