Holed Stone


The Somerset Historic Environment record suggests the stone was originally at ST 5653 4562, at the foot of King's Castle hill. Also that in its new? or long-adopted? guise as Hoker Stone it stood on the green outside Well's cathedral. Couldn't people be bothered to walk all that way to seal their bargains? Or was it intentionally brought nearer the cathedral where any dubious goings-on could be quashed? Does anyone know when it was moved?
