Beacon Hill Stones - 30.3.2004

Full 8 figure grid ref (from English Heritage scheduling) = SS13194409

I think I found this standing stone. It's not obvious. In general I need to point out that the principle of 'livestock rubbing posts' doesn't seem to exist on Lundy because most of the nine standing stones recognised by English Heritage on the island are not the right size to be considered as Bronze Age menhirs in Cornwall.
