Staddlestones: An unusually large and rare harlequin set of carved Cotswold stone staddlestones
the largest 91cm high
Staddlestones were used from medieval times onwards as supporting bases for granaries, hayricks and game larders. The staddlestones lifted the granaries above the ground thereby protecting the stored grain from vermin and water seepage. In Middle English staddle or stadle is stathel, from Old English stathol, a foundation, support or trunk of a tree.
