Long Description:

A millstone on a public green space on Ings Lane, Ellerker. Probably from Ellerker Windmill (which was incorporated with Ellerker Watermill in 1822) but was demolished sometime after 1910 (Visit Link). The mill's original location is shown on this old OS map of 1855 (Visit Link).  The stone is now used as a marker for the village green.
