The Cop Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


The Copstone can be seen easily from the road. A short walk up the gentle hill and the stone is upon us.
Standing in the trough that goes all round it the stone is nearly 6ft tall, leaning slightly to the northish
helpfully pointing us in the direction of all the other little lovelies that hide amongst the grasses up on
the moor. The stone is nice and smooth and at the tip I kinda saw it as a bit phallic, and at the bottom
were some probably natural markings that almost looked like ancient carvings, lozenges and a spiral
but it was more than likely just me after a long walk I was beginning to see the ancient world everywhere.
