History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The monolith was set up in the Neolithic period, probably about 2000 BCE. So it predated the church at Rudston by over 2500 years, meaning that the Christian church builders deliberately chose this site to associate their religious centre with a long established location of some significance.
The monolith is signposted off the B1253 road through Rudston village.
