The Hellstone

The Hellstone is actually a long barrow but what is more noticeable is the doleman on top of the barrow. It is complete and was rebuilt in 1866 but to be honest it does not quite look like it was correctly rebuilt. I visited in winter when the vegetation was low but the nearby pond was full. Access is via a footpath from Portesham Hill, there is a lay by near a barn, or via the footpath from the Hardy Monument. Look out also for various Portesham stones scattered about!
