The Whipping Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Built into the wall surrounding St Peter's Church in Onchan is a stone pillar which is known locally as the "whipping post". However, its origin is more likely to be that it is the sole survivor of a semi-circle of similar stones associated with a pre-historic burial site. Posted by Zeb
