Redland Farm

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 19.6.10.
There is a small lane running off the A4226 which leads directly to Redland Farm. I parked up by the farmhouse to ask for permission but there was no one in. I then heard a tractor and I soon had the 'what are you doing here stare' by the farmer. When I explained he was very friendly and pointed me in the right direction for the stones. There is a track which runs behind the large barn and at the end of the track is a metal gate into a field on the left. (the last gate). The stones are in the centre of the field - 2 minute walk. There are 5 stones here, grouped together. The farmer stated that this was the remains of a burial chamber although it is listed as a standing stone. The field was full of sheep and cattle - who got a bit frisky as they thought I had come to feed them! There was a sheep stood on top of the largest stone when I arrived - no doubt admiring the view! The nearby Cottrell stones are eaily seen from the farm a couple of fields away. Good one to visit but make sure you ask for permission first.
