The magnificent standing stone seen from the south, roughly.


That's absolutely incredible!
This magnificent standing stone is in a private property, but it's not the usual land or crop field, it's a private luxury house!
Of course I didn't even try to ring the door and ask the permission, I took all the photos from the road.
Behind the fence brickwall you see the upper part of this stone that struggles to be seen by the world. The monolith is about 3 metres tall, with a width at the base of about 1.60 metres and a thickness of about 50 centimetres.
