The Rudston monolith is the tallest prehistoric standing stone in Britain, standing almost 8 metres high, nearly 2 metres wide, a metre thick and weighing somewhere in the region of 26 tons. This giant block of grey sandstone or gritstone was quarried 10 miles away at Cayton Bay and was brought here either in the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age. The Norman churchyard of All Saints that it stands in is of course, some 3000 years younger.
