Visual inspection and measurement: Photographs.

A granitic glacial erratic is said to have been used in the past as a wishing stone much to the irritation of the church elders. It measures about 280 by 160cms and is 70cms high. It is now split into three parts. Fifty years ago it was still possible to see where lines of holes had been drilled to split it but these have weathered away. It was probably split for building purposes rather than by the church elders in an attempt to destroy it although this used to be given as the reason for its being split!
