The Hoar Stone

Chambered Tomb


Two 'classic' megalithic stories are attached to the Hoar Stone barrow: that if anyone tries to drag the stones away, they will return of their own accord when no-one's looking - and that the main stone ('the Old Soldier') goes down to the village stream to drink on Midsummer's Eve.
