Where are they kept these days? Any upto date pics available?
I believe the Calder Stones are being kept in storage. But it occurs to me that with 2008 coming up they ought to be on display as the most important prehistoric artifact from the early history of the Liverpool area.
See the following sites for more on the Calder Stones:
For protection they should be in one of the local museums instead of the last idea when they were on public display in the greenhouse in Harthill. As you probably know, the greenhouse was vandalized and they had to be removed from that location.
Their present situation reminds me of when I saw them in the early Sixties when they were in a Liverpool Corporation yard off Garston Old Road under a green tarpaulin along with an old stagecoach!
The ''Robin Hood' stone is thought to be one of the Calder Stones. It is on Booker Avenue near the junction with Archerfield Road. The inscription says it was found some distance away when the houss were being built in the area.
