The Longstone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 8th August 2003: The Longstone sits in a field just south of the village. There's no public footpath to the stone, but when we visited there were no crops in the field, so I wondered in to take a closer look at it.

The stone isn't enormous, but it's pale colouration makes it stand out from a distance. The field is surrounded by relatively tall hedges, so it's almost impossible to spot it from the road. The power lines that run to the north of Longstone village dominate the skyline, and make for a contrasting backdrop to the stone.
