|Description ||ok it's not a stone but it's worth commenting on. This is in the churchyard too.|
This Yew tree 'bleeds' an unidentifiable red liquid that has baffled scientists and arborist for years. The legend states that a man was hung from this tree and it has been bleeding ever since. It also states that the tree will continue to bleed until a Welshman sits on the throne in Nevern Castle
| The stuff issuing from the tree is resin. The legend says that a monk died here and since then the yew tree has bled. Another legend states that the bleeding is a sign of unrequited love. |
| whatever it is - it looked pretty gory! |
