The south face of the standing stone. The red and yellow stick is 1 metre long, for scale. The big bump on the west side of the stone is clearly visible. It looks like a nose at 1 metre from the ground.


This standing stone is on a private land. The owner was a little annoyed when I rang the door to ask for his permission, but he granted it to me. From the cattle gate you walk northeast for 115 metres and you reach this huge standing stone. It's 3.5 metres tall, it's 1 metre wide at the base and 60 centimetres thick.
On the west face of the stone, at 1 metre from the ground, there is a bump that also marks the wider dimension of the stone.
