The standing stone while I'm approaching from the cattle gate downhill.


The standing is atop a hill in a private land. I was lucky that the landowner was passing by with his tractor and granted me the permission to get closer to the stone. I opened the rusty cattle gate and walked westwards up the hill for 185 metres with a rise of 25 metres, on a marsh ground with many hidden puddles!
The stone is 2.10 metres tall, 80 centimetres wide and 70 centimetres thick. It leans to almost the north (345°) by about 10°. The south face is completely defaced by two bucketfuls of yellow and grey synthetic paint, it looks like out of a spite!
