15/62 Butter Stone

Grooved, roughly-pyramidal boulder about 0.75 metre high. This boulder was
used during the 1663-5 plague as an exchange point where the inhabitants of
Barnard Castle could leave money for produce left by the farmers of the region
without the 2 groups ever meeting. The stone is listed for historical interest.
