I'm guessing this should have a 'Disputed Antiquity' label really....

I came across a reference to this stone on the Parwich Village History website last year, where they suggest it to be possibly prehistoric.

It was first mentioned in a 15th Century document as The Holleston....the website translates this as being The Holestone; and if it's one thing this stone has it is plenty of holes.

The 19th/20th Century iron work hinges put me off a bit.....but hey and in its favour its only a couple of fields away from the standing stone mentioned in the 'HER' at Hawkslow Farm.
