Nutcracker Rippon Tor

People still go looking for the Nutcracker stone on the side of Rippon Tor as its name is marked on the Ordnance Survey maps. It is there, but in pieces on the ground and no longer a logan (balanced) stone. Toppled by erosive agents of the anthropocene in 1975 it rocks in memory only. It requires an archaeology of the air.
