Full Description

A sub-rectangular earth-set quartz stone approximately 0.75m by 0.75m and 0.3m high, although historically it may have been taller. It is possibly a natural stone, although no other similar stones were noticed in the immediate vicinity, but it could have also once occupied the line of the former Somerset/Devon county boundary.
