Dancing Stone, Danby Dale

Some weeks ago I posted photos of what I believed to be the Dancing Stone which i’ve since found to be incorrect, it was the Hanging Stone.
Peter Mernagh has kindly provided the following photos of the correct location.

They clearly show the carving by John Castilo with the words “Neu Hees Deead” (Now he’s dead) added afterwards that I was unable to locate (because I was not in the right place)

  1. Thats a great find Chris. I’d not heard of the Dancing Stone and a link with Castillo too, fantastic, I’ll have to visit.
    I don’t suppose that during your researches that suppose you’ve come a cross any folklore for the Hanging Stone or the origins of the name, we have a few locally and there’s plenty nationally. By strange synchronicity I’ve just posted this on the Hanging Stone above Hutton Lowcross http://teessidepsychogeography.wordpress.com/2015/01/04/the-hanging-stone/
