Holed Stone


I'm guessing this could be the stone mentioned below, and it has indeed been moved as Phil suggests. I'm not sure the sizes fit, but the hole might look suitably wide. Otherwise, I guess it's a different one, holed stones galore.
Near the Dawns Men, in the fence of a field by the footpath leading to Borah, is another holed stone, laid down lengthways. It is thirty-three inches wide at one end, tapering down to ten inches at the other, and seven inches in thickness. The circular hole, five inches in diameter, is seven inches from the extremity of the widest portion.
