Looking through the dirty window of the shed. The patterns are quite well visible. The yellow gizmo on the stone is the ambient datalogger.


We came here for the first time on May 13th, 2000, but since then things have changed a lot. Mainly because the stone isn't visible anymore.
It's been placed inside a 3 metres by 3 metres wooden shed, that is obviously locked, with only two small and dirty windows through which the visitors can look inside. There are plans to move the stone to a museum and replace it with a replica.
On the top of the stone the OPW placed a datalogger to record the environmental conditions.
This stone, that is one piece of granite, has a phallic shape and has wonderful spiral patterns all over its surface and has been set in a concrete base.
The last three photos in this page are scanned slides from the visit of May 13th, 2000.
