QUITE a few people knew the mystery, interesting rock formation in last week’s paper. Photographed by 12 year old Daniel Aynesworth, the ‘Easter Island Moai Statue’ is not in the Pacific, but closer to home at Black Park, Eastby Brow, and was correctly identified by Chris Ettenfield, Vera Whitaker, David Batchelor and Peter Greenwood.

David tells us: “The ‘Easter Island’ rock featured in your paper can be found at map ref 552031. Go up the steep road from Eastby towards Black Hill and at the cattle grid where the Shelter Cliff Wood ends, take the track left up the side of the wood for no more than 50 metres and the rock can be seen a little higher up the hillside.”

In the area close to the “statue” there is evidence of stone quarries where they extracted stone for the building of the two reservoirs on Black Park known as High Dock and Low Dock and about 200 yards further along the road at the highest point there are about six levelled areas where a wooden temporary “hamlet” was built to house the navigators or ‘navvies’ who were building the reservoirs.

The remote Easter Island is in the Pacific and there are about 1,000 statues built by the Rapa Nui people averaging 30 feet high and weighing 80 tons.

Surprisingly, the vast majority face inland. They are still very much an enigma and must have been built over a very long period of time, Moving them long distances to their sites and erecting them must have been a mammoth task and rivals the building of Stonehenge.

What their purpose was and why they went to so much care and effort remains a mystery to this day.

So, what about this pocket mansion (above). It shouldn’t be too difficult. Suggestions by 8am on Monday to news@cravenherald.co.uk
