|Description ||Text from Hanterman: This is not a standing stone as such but a large (2.0m by 1.8m) lump of stone, probably naturaly deposited. From its position atop Hergest Ridge it aquires the most magnificent views to all the known Neolithic and Bronze Age sites in the Walton Basin and Barrows on the surrounding hillsides. though distant some may be. It has many folk tales attached to it from down the centuries. My reason for its inclusion is its alignment with other standing stones on Hergest Ridge and across the Held Valley on Bradnor Hill and Cold Harbour at the Rackway.|
