London Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


London Stone to cross the road

The American property developer Gerald Hines is trying to persuade the City of London authority to let him re-house the stone in the foyer of the redeveloped Cannon Street station.

It's true that this is nearer to it's original horizontal position - albeit several meters up in the air from the original ground height where it stood.

There hasn't been any movement on the proposed relocation of the stone to the Museum of London and almost anything would be preferable to the way it is currently housed.

The London Stone is not far from its original location. It features in the London Earthstars geometry on a line from Horsenden Hill at Greenford to Tower Hill. Other mark points along this line are St Dunstan's in the west and St. Bride's in Fleet Street. The alignment is an axis of a huge five point star pattern around London. The five points are St. Mary East Barnet, St, Gabriels Wanstead, St Dunstan's Bellingham Green, Caesar's Camp Wimbledon Common and Horsenden Hill
( formerly site of a hill fort), Greenford. See Earthstars The Visionary Landscape (2000).
If this stone is to be moved, as the reputed foundation stone of London it should be done with an appropriate druid ceremony.
