Nelson's Monument

Standing Stone / Menhir


I'll bet there are a few hits at this site to see what's going on.

Nelson's Monument?

OK. Its current location is not its original one. It was taken in 1805 from a site 1.6 km north where it was one of a number of similar stones in the field giving it a very probable prehistoric provenance.

It is now inscribed with a dedication to Nelson from the workers at Lorn Furnace.

It is a majestic piece of granite set, in its present elevated position, in a wonderful location against a backdrop of the surrounding hills.

3.4m high.
