Residents puzzled by mystery stones

Puzzled residents are trying to solve the mystery behind the surprise arrival of carved stone heads which were left outside their properties.

The sculptures, which all feature the same carved symbol and come with a riddle attached, have been dropped off outside numerous homes and businesses in Yorkshire.

But despite CCTV footage showing a man leaving three of the heads outside a post office and personal investigations into the meaning of the carvings, the recipients are none the wiser as to where the stones have come from.

So far, 12 stone heads have appeared in Goathland and Kilburn, in North Yorkshire; four have been found in Arthington, near Leeds, West Yorkshire; and three in Braithwell, near Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

Each of the heads looks different but all feature the same carving - which appears to spell out the word "paradox" - and a note bearing the riddle: "Twinkle twinkle like a star does love blaze less from afar?"

Mike and Valerie Hoyes, who run a post office in Braithwell, found three heads outside their business on the morning of August 23.

Checking their CCTV footage, they discovered a man they did not know dropping off the stones in a small car at around 4am. They have since passed the tape on to the police.

Mrs Hoyes said: "It's very weird. They're a bit like gargoyles really, obviously somebody has taken a lot of trouble if they have been carved.

"On the back it looks like an occult thing, it does actually spell paradox, but we don't know what any of it means."

She added: "We're just a bit nonplussed really, didn't know what it was all about, we just moved them away from the front of the shop and more or less forgot about them. It's just a bit of a quandary."

A North Yorkshire Police spokeswoman confirmed police had received reports of stone heads being left in various places around the village of Kilburn.

Im in East Yorkshire
Wonder if there are any stone heads around here

I suck at riddles. Otherwise I'd be all over that.

"Twinkle twinkle like a star does love blaze less from afar?" & PARADOX.

How peculiar. I wonder if there's some sort of ancient curse possibly attached to that?
