The stone couldn't be found, carefully looking on foot, 17
April 2010 (in response to a query from a user of the Lakes
Guides website). The people at the nearest house said that
there was an accident there about a year ago, a youngster
going too fast must have hit the stone, and it disappeared.
A couple of weeks ago the farmer noticed the broken stone
lying in the grass some little farther north roughly at the
roadsign for the bend.
