Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 6.6.12

This is a huge stone very close to the road so you can’t really miss it.

We parked on the verge and I went over for a close up look.

As I was standing next to the stone when the local farmer pulled up in his tractor.
‘Want to buy the stone?’ he asked in I assume a joking manner.
‘No thanks’; I replied ‘It won’t fit on the roof rack’
‘Nay bother’ says he and off he tootled back to the farm!

You would need a seriously large vehicle to transport this 4 metre high monster.
The stone was covered in that ‘hairy’ lichen I have seen so much of.

Certainly worth a visit when in the area.

A farmer with a sense of humour, that's a novelty. :0 Posted by greyrock
