Putt's Corner Stone
What will I see?
This stone is the stuff of legend and is variously called the 'Slaughter Stone' and the ‘Witches Stone’. Due to road widening it is no longer in its original position, but can be viewed in the shrubbery in front of the Hare and Hounds pub. The stone’s silcrete composition indicates that it is of local origin and forms part of a little understood distribution of stones along ancient trackways and cross-ways which have now become modern roads. Believed to be Bronze Age, it is known to have been moved at least once in road widening.
