6/73 Hangman Stone
Boundary stone. Probably early C18. Sandstone. Roughly shaped monolith
approximately 1.25 metres high, standing on low stone base. The west face
is inscribed "T D", for Thomas Duncombe, former Lord of the Manor of
Helmsley. The stone recalls a man carrying a stolen sheep with its hind
legs tied around his neck. When he sat down to rest, the sheep slipped
backwards and hanged him. J Rushton, The Ryedale Story, second edition,
1986, p 143.
