HAUTVILLES QUOIT

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  THE OUTLIER
DESCRIPTION + /

A large stone close to Hautville Quoit Farm, recumbent since at least the mid 17th century but assumed to have originally been upright. Described by Stukeley in 1723 as being 13 feet long, it is now about half that length, Grinsell suggesting that fragments have occasionally been broken off for mending the roads. Stukeley also referred to the presence of a second stone. The stone forms part of a complex of standing stone monuments at Stanton Drew.
