Lady's Gate

Standing Stone / Menhir


It is said that an other-worldly lady waits at this 2.7m high leaning standing stone for anyone who intends to search for treasure beneath it. I'm not sure whether she'll be in a good mood if you are. It is called 'Lady's Gate' because it once flanked a gateway onto a track- it is also said that a matching stone stood 300 yards away.
