From the northwest. The red and yellow stick is 1 metre long, for scale.


Sometimes finding these stones takes patience, a quality that I'm short of. But this time I kept up looking for it and I won. The standing stone is behind a modern house where I stopped at and rang the door to ask for permission.
This monolith is huge. It's 2.20 metres tall, 1.68 metres wide and 71 centimetres wide. The wider faces are aligned southeast-northwest (120°-300°), and the stone leans to southeast by 10°.
