Cock Crowing Stone, Meltham

The Cock Crowing Stone is situated next to Wessenden Head Road on the flanks of West Nab above Meltham.

History

Curiously, there is no known folklore attached to the boulder, other than speculative rumours.[1]

Other stones with the same name elsewhere in the country were rumoured to rotate at the sound of a cock crowing, or to be standing on top of a treasure hoard.
