This rock lies within the Wilton International Site, so cannot be viewed by the public.
The plaque says everything you need to know :-
This 3.8 ton piece of calcareous limestone (containing shells) was transported by glaciers and deposited on the Wilton site between 70,000 and 13,000 years ago.
Mick Garrett took this shot 14 years ago.
Although the rock hasn’t changed, the surroundings have.
On the corner of Walkers Row and Union Street, nestled next to a tumble drier vent is a fragment of Gisborough Priory. It actually looks like the base of a small column, perhaps from a window ?
Many chunks of the priory were reused across the town after the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1540, although how this one ended up in a relatively modern building is a mystery.
