Standing stones

THE LONG STONE, STAUNTON SO 55931205Last night I went out to Monmouth and saw a singer musician play called James Hollingsworth. He was really good and obviously loved playing and I think he would have carried on playing till morning. http://www.jameshollingsworth.com/ . I drove back with a fabulous full moon at around midnight, following the road to Coleford, when to my left reared a large dark figure ! It was the The Staunton Longstone.  A seven foot tall bronze age stone. Apparently if you prick the stone at midnight on Midsummer's Eve it will bleed. The photo is from the following website, that lists lots of other standing stones in Gloucestershire.http://www.celiahaddon.co.uk/standing%20stones/gloucestershire.html
