A curious standing stone can be seen opposite the church porch at Barmby on the Marsh near Pocklington. Just under five feet in height this stone is known locally as ‘The Wart Stone’. Rain water sometimes gathers on the top of the stone and local legend has it that this water is a certain cure for warts. Although very little is known about the stone, it would seem to be a prehistoric monolith, probably of some religious or Pagan significance.

The Wart Stone is in Barmby Moor churchyard - several miles away from Barmby on the Marsh. However, it is still a fascinating relic from another world.Best wishes, Neil
