The Matfen Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 22.9.10
Directions: Take the road north towards the village of Matfen near the junction of the B6318 / B6321. Before you get to Matfen itself you come to a nice looking 'fortified' house. Park near the house (didn't seem to be anyone home) and you will see the stone easy enough. The grass was standing waist high around the stone so it was difficult to see the cupmarks.
The weathering on the stone reminded me of the Devils Arrows – obviously a mini version!
This is a very easy site to access (look from the car window if you prefer – as Karen did!) and is well worth a look when in the area / visiting the nearby Warrior Stone.
