The Longstone of Minchinhampton (Standing Stone / Menhir)

This is my local site as I grew up in Amberley which is the next village to Minchinhampton

My mother tells the tale that newborn babies used to be passed through the hole in the Longstone, if they were small enough to pass through the hole they were deemed to sickly to live and were killed.
