Kenward Stone



Mention of a twin stone?
Kinwardstone -- This, the largest hundred in Wilts, seems to have taken its name from a block of sarsen stone, which remained in situ till about 1835-40, when it was destroyed, partly by accident, partly on purpose. It stood by the south side of the Roman causeway, a little west of Conholt Park, in the angle formed by the turn of Dummer Lane southwards to Chute.

A similar block lies almost opposite, on the other side of the road, worn into a shape something like Assyrian sculpture.
