    Very peaceful. I can smell the air and feel how crisp it is.

    Many thanks.
    Good question! It's a megalithic standing stone - they usually form part of burial chambers or stone circles (e.g. the very famous Avebury and Stonehenge about 1hr / 1hr30mins south of here), though there is seemingly no extant evidence of other stones nearby here.
    It also has a legendary past associated with the occult and the hanging of witches!

    Damn, that is a unique stone. I bet if you did some excavation you would probably find more evidence. Of course, you won't get that chance

    I didn't realize it was 8 foot tall! I thought it was an itty bitty stone and you were laying on the ground.

    Hi Dave

    The Hawk Stone isn't that far from the Rollright Stone Circle - isn't it ?

    Yes that's right. But Rollright Stones (the large ones) have metal fencing around, and are a bit of a new age zoo with lots of visitors, so much less easy to photograph (even as slightly closer too me).
