The standing stone was hit by a tractor in 2006 and now it leans to the north-northeast and it's broken in two pieces, one standing and one on the ground next to it.


This small standing stone is in a private field where the access is forbidden. We rang at the door of the nearest house but the owner actually lives two houses down. He was happy to see us and to learn about our interest in his stone, so firstly he invited us over inside his house to have a chat, then he took us to the stone.
Unfortunately it was hit by a tractor in 2006 and now it leans to the north-northeast (20°) by about 26°, and a fragment of the stone split up and now it lies on the ground.
Its measures are about 1.30 metres of height, 63 centimetres of width and 32 centimetres of thickness.
