Like Carl before me this huge stone seemed to leap out in front of the car. It's bloody huge & such a pleasing shape. A massive granite boulder. Imagine having this in the border of your garden albeit slap bang next to the road.
I loved this stone. I had no idea it was here until I happened to pass it in the car and nearly crashed! Only a qurater mile from Trencrom Hillfort, right next to road. There is a layby 10 metres from the stone (same side of road) and an information plaque giving folklore details. This is a lovely place - a small stream running behind the stone and primroses to the front - wonderful. Next to the stone is Bowl Rock cottage and across the road is Bowl Rock Chapel. Passed it may times during the week and couldn't resist having a quick peek evey time!
Inevitably for this part of the country, the folklore relating to the Bowl Rock is giant-ish. The stone was used in the games of bowls (hence the name, nothing to do with soup or pudding) played by the giants who lived on Trencrom Hill.
