I re-visited the stone today, almost eight years since the last time I saw it in this location. The surroundings are now much more overgrown. It's in a fairly sad state really, lost at the bottom of a garden. There is now a bench in front of it, so maybe some people do get to enjoy sitting in front of it a letting their minds go!
From the one resident I spoke to today though, I don't think people are that aware of it's history. It's a rock feature in an overgrown border with some old crisp packets and cat shit for company.
an interesting stone just a few minutes from where i live. the new housing around the stone doesn't really help to appreciate the stone itself, it almost feels like it was placed under the tree as an afterthought of a housing developer. Although it's great that the stone remains there for all to see.
The stone was originally found at Constitution Hill about half a mile away. The stone lies under some mature trees in what was formally the grounds of the old library. A new housing development has sprung up around it.
The address is now "Clarkes Court" just off library Road.
