21/09/2012 - We drove the short distance after climbing Glastonbury Tor in the morning to visit Wills Neck. It was a nice surprise to come across this 2 1/2 foot standing stone in the car park. Believed to be bronze age, it stands on an ancient trackway that runs along the ridge. Tradition has it that if you sit upon it, the stone will grant you a wish. thelonious Posted by thelonious
