The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.
I have uploaded several photos of the large Standing Stone which also acts as a boundary stone known as the Long Stone at NZ 74177 10879 on Middle Rigg . This stone is marked and named as such on the 1:25 000 scale OS map. However there is another boundary stone just over a quarter of mile to the east of this across Bella Dale Slack at NZ 74692 10909 which is also known as the Long Stone and has is name written on its north face (photo uploaded). Naturally having two stones both with the same names in close proximity to each other can sometimes lead to confusion.
