|Description ||Whit Stones
Date Visited Wednesday 3rd May 2000
These two sizeable stones, likely barrow remnants, situated a couple miles west of Porlock, and several miles east of Lynton, are easily accessible.
Heading west from Porlock (the hill coming out of Porlock is VERY steep and not for the faint hearted!), keep an eye out for a fork in the A39. When you see the fork, keep going along the A39; to the right there are two car parks; take the second car park, as this puts you within one minute walk of the stones. If your companions are not interested in stones, the car park gives great views down to Porlock Bay.
Immediately opposite the car park entrance is a path. Take this path, and you will soon see the stones. When I visited, the stones were surrounded by vibrant, trumpeting daffodills, breaking the beauty / monotony of the heather. Both stones are at an angle, leaning east. The northernmost stone is 4 feet tall, the southernmost about 5' 9" tall, and both with the typical adornments for stones: lichen and bird poo!|
