Standing Stone / Menhir


Taken from the Monument Class Description for 'Standing Stones', available on the EH site:

"Standing stones might be confused with cattle rubbing stones and still remain usually in the centre of fields, such as at Swingate, Cornwall, although it is possible that some cattle rubbing stones are actually reused standing stones."

From that, if you believe EH, it appears that this is in fact a rubbing stone rather than ancient menhir?
