The Forest Chapel [Sep. 26th, 2010|10:38 am]
Tony Grist
It's a measure of how isolated this part of Cheshire (the Macclesfield Forest) once was that they didn't start building churches here until the late 17th century. This is the Forest Chapel, founded in 1673- rebuilt by the Victorians. Just down the road is Wildboarclough where, according to legend, John of Gaunt killed the last boar in England.

This is the view from the churchyard, looking south east.

Yes, those are sheep. And what I didn't notice until later is that they seem to be grouped around a huge monolith.

I just enlarged the sheep picture to full size and yes, there is indeed a monolith in the pasture.

Strange. I can't find any reference to it on any website.

It might be a cattle rubbing stone, and therefore modern...
