Hangman's Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 31.7.10.
This was a lot easier to find than I was expecting. Take the turning into Upper Lambourn off the B4000 at the junction where the cemetery is. You shortly come to a T-Junction – turn right (sign posted dead end) and follow the narrow lane up the hill to the left until you reach the cross roads and the lane in front of you turns to dirt. Park as best you can and walk up the dirt track. Shortly the track splits – take the left hand track. The stone is on your right hand side about 100 metres up the lane. The stone is about 1.5 metres high and about 0.5 metres wide at the bottom – tapering towards the top. The lane is narrow and has overhanging trees on both sides. I can well imagine children in the village daring each other to visit the stone at night! It would be quite scary in those circumstances although it was very pleasant in the summer sunshine when I visited.
