|Description ||The Langstone is at the head of a stone row on open moor and a walk is needed to reach it.
The row is in poor condition with only a few stones standing and these very small. There is one large stone, which is 2.7 metres tall, at the southern end of the row and this is visible from quite a distance. There is a small mound at the northern end which is the possible remains of a cairn, it is near the small stone which now marks the end of the row and is visible on the right side horizon.|

|Hi: I am the owner/operator of Lang Stone Co, a 147 year quarrier, fabricator and distributor of stone in central Ohio. I find it remarkable that there is a standing stone of the same name. Standing stones can have a mythical quality, and this represents a connection between the UK and the States. Thanks.|
|Hi Larry - would your Lang be the founder's name? We have lots of Langstones or Langstanes - it means a long stone. Come over and see our standing stones sometime. Good to hear from Ohio.|

|where is this pic taken at??|
| Merlin this stone is famous on Dartmoor, Devon, England. it is probably terminal stone of stone row, most stones now lost.|
| I visited here yesterday, and can say that the little stone on the horizon of this picture is NOT the end stone of the row, but a much more modern boundary marker stone. |
The stone row runs off to the left of this picture, the first stones visible here to the left of this longstone.
