The Long Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 16.4.12

Taking the minor road west off the B3274 I parked at a field gate opposite Mowhay Barn. The gate was heavily barbed wired and the field full of sheep and lambs. Some of the sheep were using the stone to rub up against.

Given this (and the fact the field is overlooked by the house opposite) I settled for a view from the gate. The stone is a whopper, approx 3m high x 1.5m across, and is easily seen from the gate. The stone looks to be square at the bottom and goes to a point.

The sun was shining, the nearby stream bubbling away and the stone was a lovely sight to see.
All in all well worth a visit when in the area.
