The Cove

Standing Stones


Stukeley wrote in 1743: "In an orchard near the church is a cove consisting of three stones.. this they call the parson, the bride and bridegroom."

Aubrey, who visited in 1664 knew the stones as the Bride, the Parson's Stone and the Cooke's Stone. (Presumably the groom had sneaked off into the pub?)
