Caistor, Fonaby, The Stone Sack
This odd shaped stone once stood in a field near Fonaby Top Farm, Caistor (about 1 mile north of the town).
The tale goes as follows: One day, St Paulinus was riding by, when he spied a farmer sowing corn, and requested grain from the nearby sack to feed his ass. The grudging farmer replied ‘That’s not a sack –it’s a stone’. ‘Then stone it shall be’ said the saint. And so it was.
The stone is said to be broken up now, and lying under a nearby field hedge.
