Long Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir

Folklore

Celia Hadon describes the Long Stone at Staunton on her web site and recounts a legend about the stone:
Tradition says that if it is pricked by a pin on the dot of midnight, it bleeds.
Not the most original folk tale, but interesting none the less. [An older citing is Alfred Watkins' classic 'Old Straight Track' of 1925].
