|Description ||Last recorded in 1930, protruding from an earthen bank, this lost Shropshire stone should be in bank / hedgerow on the right hand side, somewhere just either side of the gate. Had a good look around, but no success. A stone further into the field along the footpath (just left of the tree on the skyline) initially got me excited, but should be about 5 feet by 2 feet. This was not. Will visit again when vegetation is down.|
This is just off the A5, on a bend, so take care. It's rather obvious here that someone failed to negotiate that bend!
|Maybe that's where the stone escaped when it was 'going down to the local river for a drink', as many legends will have us believe! |
