Staddle Stone

 Staddle Stones (or Mushroom Stones) originated in 18th Century England.  Standing upright like mushrooms, staddle stones have been used for centuries to keep barns and granaries off the ground to protect them from vermin and water damage.  Staddle is an old English word for stump.  The overhang of the stone top prevented rats from climbing up the stone.

Today the antique staddle stones are highly sought as garden ornaments and are extremely expensive.  Herb has been replicating the antique staddle stones in hypertufa. Traditional staddle stones usually range in height from 24" to 44". Due to regional influences, they were made in various shapes and of different stone.

Most staddle stones are at $50.
