|Description ||Martin L's previous photo taken in 1989 shows the menhir towering over the nearby conifer. 20 years later I'm afraid the tree is so large that it is in danger of covering the stone. Hopefully the roots will not de-stabilise it.|

| When adding in your recent photos of the site I really was shocked about its current state. Certainly something should be done here. 20 years ago it really was a stunning site. Fine picture anyway. |
| It's still an impressive stone, and I think it and the other nearby cupmarked stones ARE protected, but the tree seems to be growing on the neighbouring plot, and the problem seems to lie there...|

| Maybe the neighbour does not like the menhir or the visitors, that are attracted by the menhir..... In germany we have many (also recent) examples of serious damages at megalithic sites caused by tree growth. Very difficult to handle as the trees sometimes are very impressive and old, but obviously not in this case.|
