Kingston Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

This is a note to Martin "Pure Joy" and I hope it is in the right place. You mentioned that you live in Hounslow and therefore the Coronation Stone in Kingston is you nearest ancient relic. As a boy I grew up in Hounslow and distinctly remember there being a Sarsen Stone in Lampton Park on Lampton Road. I cannot say whether it ( the park or the stone) is still there. Neither can I testify as to the true origins of the stone however the priginal "Plaque" simply called it a Sarsen Stone (whatever that means). Given your travels I hope you find someting to be of interest under you nose. Kind regards, James
