Not very easy to find involving a drive along some hair raisingly small lanes. From ponsanooth, take the turning at the bridge (centre of village) past shop and school and head up very narrow, steep lane until you meet t junction at top (approx 1 mile). Straight accross is a farm track which leads to Tory farm. From here bear right on a footpath accross a couple of fields, the stone is directly in front of Tremenheere farmhouse. 9ft tall with a square-ish profile and slightly bulbous top. Has metal eyelet fixed into it at the top, apparently once attatched to a washing line. Maengurta Posted by Maengurta
