What an odd name for a stone? (which by the way looks nothing like a boy – naked or not!)

This is a very easy stone to visit – you don't even have to get out of your car if you don't want to!
Heading east along the B3224, take the first turning on the right after Wiveliscombe Barrow. A little way along this lane you will see the stone on the left.
The stone itself is a large lump of quartz approximately 1.5 metres tall x 1.5 metres wide. The stone was largely covered in moss.

Certainly worth a look when in the area.
