The Longstone of Minchinhampton (Standing Stone / Menhir) by jman An odd visit, difficulty parking was enhanced when we tried to park opposite the site, a member of the local constabulary who was sat in his Landrover said 'you can't park here, it's a royal estate!' We were followed away from the site by another constabulary member in his Volvo T20.
In the end, undeterred, we parked on the grass by the local bus stop and walked, we passed our friend in the Landrover and smiled.
I'm glad to say he smiled back.
The site itself was good, it reminds us of the Rollright Stones, same type of corrosion on the stones, same height and overall impression. Lovely day, warm sun in March, the spring equinox has blessed us.
