Standing Stone / Menhir


Bit of a "disputed antiquity" one this:

In "Prehistoric Sites of Herefordshire" (1994 Logaston Press), George Children and George Nash claim this as a Bronze Age standing stone, possibly associated with the nearby Canon Pyon round barrow.

However, Jonathan Sant ("Stone Spotting in Herefordshire" 2000 Moondial) believes it to be the remains of a wayside cross. The stone/cross was re-erected in its current position in 1933.

It could of course be a standing stone re-used as a christian cross. The OS 1:25000 shows it as "Stone" in gothic script.
