|Description ||The stone is about 2.5 metres long, 1.2 metres wide and 0.7 m thick granite type stone. Probably once standing, and then incorporated into the hedge, this would have been a nice menhir. |
Although now fallen, it has now (probably fairly recently) been cleared from the talus all around it, looking like it is perhaps cared for by somebody – although not so well that it has had all sorts of stuff dumped beside it.
| Looking at this again now, it makes me wonder whether the stone was dislodged and fell from the talus when the fairly recent tree clearing work was done. It looks like just the top corner would have been showing above the bank. |
Which makes the following thought come to mind. Just how many more forgotten menhirs and other such stones are "lost" within Normandy's and other places hedgerows?
