TheCaptain visited on 8th Aug 2005 - their rating: Cond: 4 Amb: 4 Access: 3 At the end of the road southwest from Vieuville at a place names les Maisons, there is a farm track which continues on down to a stream. Here in a field of horses is the Pierre de Beaumont dolmen. I couldn't actually get to it, but got to within 50 metres. Its a nice looking thing, with its capstone still in place on top of several support stones, and I would estimate it to be about 4 metres square. I met a lady here out walking her dog who told me that until recently you could walk right to the dolmen. Now it has been fenced off, and it is a great shame, and shouldn't be allowed.

Unfortunately, from August 2005, direct access to this dolmen has been prevented, with the erection of fences, including electrical fences around the field within which it sits, due to a local equestrian centre expanding and putting horses in the field.

While visiting in August 2005, I met a lady walking her dog here who used to like going and sitting at the dolmen contemplating, and she was telling me its a great shame, and that she has complained to the local council. Her opinion was that the dolmen should be available for all to enjoy, and that up until a few weeks ago, she had always been able to.
