Jubilee Stone On Shaftoe Crags

Standing Stone Bolam Northumberland

Jubilee Stone On Shaftoe Crags

Standing Stone In Bolam, Northumberland

A tall stone marking Queen Victoria's Jubilee.

This standing stone is in honour of Queen Victoria's Jubilee 21 June 1887 and was placed there by a Colonel R. Atkinson.

Below is Salter's Nick and the stone is up on the left side of this gulley. There are gates further back or futher along the wall to get you into the field above.

If you still need a bit more help, here is a map of the area. Park at the red cross and the Jubilee Stone is at the blue cross.

Follow the wall on your right and you will eventually come to Shaftoe Crags. When you come to the top you want to be on the other side of the wall. There are a few gates along the way. Then it's in the field near Salters' Nick which is a gulley in the crags.

Show Parking On Google Maps

There is parking at Bolam Lake if you fancy a walk around there too, otherwise follow signs for Shaftoe Crags which is NW of Bolam Lake. Follow the road NW from Bolam Lake for less than 1km then look for a fingerpost sign on the left side. Head up the road and then you will come to a parking area in a field just through a gate.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
