Giant's Stone

Standing Stones


This stone and the two nearby mark the place where Jack the Giant Killer despatched his last victim. Jack hid behind the Giant's Stone to shoot, but unfortunately the mortally wounded giant managed to get a punch in and Jack was himself killed. The stone now acts as his gravestone.
