|Description ||These stones are almost unheard of. They must be amongst the tallest menhirs
yet to be discovered by the masses! The O.S. map doesn't actually show them,
but the settlement of 'Stones' has a 'Stones Lane' so you know you're on the
The first one is a curious, spindley thing, twelve feet high. It sits on a large circular stone, like a mill-stone. There are marks on it's surface that could indicate it's use as a gatepost. I include it here as it is sited atop an ancient 'beacon hill', called 'Centre Hill' and may have replaced a
stone now missing, and because of it's proximity to the others in the group.
The present stone appeared sometime between 1912 and 1921.
