Long Description:
A glacial erratic is a piece of rock that differs from the size and type of rock native to the area in which it rests.

'Erratics' take their name from the Latin word errare, and are carried by glacial ice, often over distances of hundreds of kilometres. They can range in size from pebbles to large boulders.

The location of this 'erratic' is a bit unusual, in that it is in a small park in the middle of a housing estate. It has been rolled a few metres from it's original position to make room for a new medical centre.

There is no educational or information signage at the location.
Type of Display: Erratic
