Summary : The site of the Longstone.

The Longstone, a sandstone megalith, formerly stood about
half-way along, and 15 to 20 yds. in from, the northern hedge of
a field still called "Longstone Field". It was destroyed in
1875, but has been described by a local farmer as being about
6 1/2 ft. above ground level by 4 ft. broad, narrowing to 2 to
2 1/2 ft., by 1 1/2 to 2 ft. thick; although Rudder gave its
dimensions as 10 ft. high by 6 ft. broad by 5 ft. thick. A
portion of the stone about 18 inches square is still to be seen
at the well at Closeturf Farm (SO 585048), where it is used as a
water-bucket stand. (2-3)
