Extract from the Northern Times of 6 January 1967, reprinted in 'From our old files' 50 Years Ago on 6 Jan 17, recording the famous standing stone at Ospisdale to be "still lying on the verge where it fell after it had been struck and broken by a passing vehicle. In reporting Council proceedings the article states that Mr C Beaton, architect, told the County Council that the matter had been brought to the attention of the Ministry of Works inspector. Mr J P Whittet, who had asked what progress there was, said that in icy conditions the stone could be dangerous if a car skidded into it.
