Percy Manning recorded the standing stone known as the Hawk Stone at Dean, in the parish of Spelsbury.
This is a very weathered and pitted monolith, standing alone in a field on the summit of a hill. It was recorded as about 7 feet high and 2' 6" in circumference (These measurements taken by Kingham Hill School History Club in 1969).
The purpose of the stone is unknown, it may have been the remains of a barrow or more likely was a boundary marker or a grave marker, although it does not appear to be sited on an old boundary. Leeds visited the stone in 1921.
