Yorks magnetic curb stones

On a recent visit to York i found that the curb stones appear to be Whin stone, and ide bet they originate from one of the Cleveland Dyke quarries between Stainton and Cliff rigg.  The image shows a rare earth magnet stuck to a curb stone not far from the Shambles,in York city centre.

The second image is the boothem area of york the curb stones tested here were also magnetic.
