The Newton Stone is a Class I symbol stone which also has an Ogham inscription carved upon it. The stone was found in a wood near Shevock toll-gate on the slope of a hill above Shevock Burn around 1.2km from Newton House in 1803 and was moved to the grounds of the house some time after 1835.
The Ogham inscription runs vertically down the side of the stone before curving and returning upwards a shorter distance and includes the personal names Idarnon and Vorenn. On another face of the stone are six horizontal lines of Half-uncial script which are thought to be contemporary with the Ogham and may also include personal names. On the opposite side of the stone to the Ogham is a mirror symbol and a spiral motif.
