The South Zeal Menhir at The Oxenham Arms Hotel

Visit this ancient stone which was hand-cut by Neolithic Dartmoor people around 5000 years ago. Menhir's or Standing Stones were the equivalents of our churches or cathedrals today. Places of worship, ceremony, and gathering. This stone is solid granite, would have been cut way up on the high moor and rolled down to its current location on tree trunks, and inserted upright into the ground. Here it has stayed ever since. Monks in the 12th Century built this monastery around the stone, incorporating the pagan monolith into this Christian religious building. Many say the stone gives off energy if you pass near it.      Photograph dated 1904
