The stone stands rather sadly next to a council road depot full of piles of gravel etc. Although there are signs saying the depot is private, it makes a sensible place to park when closed, rather than the single track road.

The field it stands in is barbed wire fenced so close access would be a pain.

A fairly phallic stone from some angles.
