Staddle Stone, several usually available    SST1
Staddle Stone, several usually available SST1
Original quality, 19th century or older, two piece staddle stone in Bath stone. A good selection is normally available in stock, nicely coloured and weathered and most with lichen and mosses to the top and some sides. These two piece stones were originally used to support timber built corn store buildings, to keep air circulating beneath and hence the damp out and the 'lid' would keep out rats and mice etc. These buildings would always have lift-off steps which were hooked up on the side wall when not in use, hence no access for vermin. The stones vary in size but generally are 26" to 30" tall, 18" to 22" wide cap, 16" to 20" wide at foot of base. Some have a square base and some rectangular, all tapering to the top. All are complete and in good order and separate pictures of particular stones can be forwarded if required. Price is for each two piece staddle stone.
