Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 18.4.12

After spending a couple of hours looking around the shops in St Austell with Karen and the children it was time for a bit of ‘old stoning’.

We found the school easy enough and the footpath was also easy to spot.
Karen and the children stayed in the car and I headed up the path in the pouring rain.

In this instance the rain was a good thing as there was no one about and these days you have to be careful being seen hovering in trees near a school – even if it is on a public footpath!

I was surprised by how big this stone is – it’s massive!

It goes without saying that getting a close up of the stone would be impossible without prior permission from the school.
