Details of stone on Pastscape

A standing stone at Verwood (SU 0808), known as the "Wur Stone", was probably "Le Horeston" mentioned in a perambulation of the bounds of Cranborne Chase in the time of Edward I. It was a large block of sandstone and stood on the heath not far from the Ringwood road, but was thrown down and buried some time before 1872. (1-2)
