Standing Stone / Menhir


Arrived from The Horestone on 6.3.2009. The Whittlestone sits in a landscape made up of a refuse bin, a flag pole (with St George's Flag), a Jubilee commemoration bench and a neat stone building which appears to be a public building (I couldn't work out what). Lower Swell is a nice village, but sadly the Whittlestone doesn't add much. I sat on the Jubilee bench for a few minutes and then headed west towards Lower Swell long barrow. As you leave the village, the two new developments on the road out are called Whittlestone Close and Whittlestone Hollow, so at least there is some acknowledgement of the oldest piece of the village's history amongst the Little England-isms. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
