|Description ||The stone is about 3.5 metres tall, slightly leaning and pointing skywards. About two thirds of the way up is an intriguing hole through the stone, oval in shape, about 25 cm by 20 cm.|
|Can we call him 'Percy Drake'?!! (Lol) The hole is very face-shaped isn't it? Reminds me of those old seaside picture-boards that you stand behind and poke your face through. You'd need to be pretty tall to do it with this one! Maybe the moon was viewed through this at an important time, or the sun's rays shining through the hole touched another feature nearby that was important? |
|Well, yes indeed Angie, the hole in old Percy here is indeed used to poke faces through. In fact it is traditional to hold children up on the shoulders of their parents and poke their head through the hole in order to cure whatever ailments they may have, and to make them live a long and healthy life.|
|Interesting analogy with the Men an Tol hole which was used for curing children of rickets & the like.|
|Tell me something, are there any nearby stones? What is the distance to other stones?|
