Alton Priors

Christianised Site

Alton Priors (Christianised Site) by Chance When I first visited this site I spoke to an old lady in the other church, just over the spring in Alton Barnes. She called this stone "The Maiden Stone" and then added, some say "The Virgin Stone". It who be interesting to know if it has ever been properly examined. Maybe it's the remains of a handfasting or oath stone like the one Stukeley saw at Avebury
