London Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir

London Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) by Zeb Is it or isn't it prehistoric? I'd like to think it is but it is frustrating that so much of the past is lost to us. At least we know the stone has survived 2000 years when you consider how much of the past has literally been lost through fire, bombs and redevelopment. And I'm glad it has survived because, as a Londoner, the saying is "So long as the stone of Brutus is safe, so long shall London flourish". My grandad was a great walker and explorer of London and I remember him telling me about this. What took me so long to go and seek it out for myself? Viva!
