A Moorlands resident is appealing for help in identifying stones which her father has unearthed in his garden.
The large stones, with unusual markings, including arrows, have been found in a garden in St Edward’s Park area in Cheddleton.
Jacqui Dunn posted the photos on Facebook recently to ask if anyone may know where the stones come from.
She said: “Upon tidying the back garden (on the St Edwards hospital estate) my dad found a few of these very large stones buried.
“We have been trying to identify the Mason’s bank mark with no joy as yet.
“We are wondering if they are from Dieulacres Abbey?”
Jacqui added: “Dad also has several large pieces (used as coping stones) that have grooves carved for glass windows. These are well over a metre long.
“Can anyone shed any light on this please?”
We contacted Jacqui who said she was happy for us to publish the photos to see if any of our readers could help identify these mysterious stones.
Anyone with any information is being invited to contact Jacqui by email at: email@example.com.
