STADDLE stones were originally used as supporting bases for granaries, hayricks, game larders, etc. The staddle stone lifted the granaries above the ground, thereby protecting the stored grain from vermin & water seepage. In Middle English staddle or stadle is stathel, from Old English 'stathol', a foundation, support or trunk of a tree. Source: Wikipedia
