Long Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited 28th March 2004: On the down side this stone is slap bang next to a busy road, but on up side access to the stone is extremely good. In fact you could view the stone from your car if you wanted. I opted to get out, leaving the others to watch from a distance. There's a slender hard shoulder so parking isn't too dangerous.

The forestry immediately to the north of the Long Stone has recently been felled, opening up views of the stone that haven't been accessible for a long time. Having said that, there are some large tree stumps very close to the stone, and photos of it before the clear felling make me think it must have looked rather nice shaded by trees.
