The Druid’s Stone, Heysham

Heysham Elena 059
In the wild garden area above the ancient church of St Peter’s, in Heysham, there are many huge boulders – but this one is a little different. I have wandered through those gardens many times but not until this summer did I come across this rock, with its curious carved indentation. Heysham is home to several stone coffins, but this indentation is far too shallow for that purpose. I wonder if this is the Druid’s Stone, mentioned in some sources?
