    Fertility Stone query

    OK. I thought I had some info on the origin of the title of this cup-and-ring stone near Eastwoods Farm, north of Dacre:

    And described by Graeme Chappell aswell, here:

    ...yet in asking Graeme and others, find that the origin of this name has not been recorded, nor a date of its discovery. The people living at Eastwoods Farm and the adjacent house don't know where the name came from. Does anyone know owt else about it?
