The Holestone Marriage Stone

This remarkable stone stands 1.5 metres high, with a 10cm diameter hole cut into it, overlooking the entire Six Mile Water Valley and one of only a few holed stones in the British Isles. Its age and origin are still a mystery, but it most likely remains from the Bronze Age.
The Holestone is an ancient Celtic Stone that has attracted visitors seeking external love and happiness since the 18th century. Upon reaching the Holestone couples undertake a traditional ceremony where the woman reaches her hand through the circular hole and her partner takes it, thus pledging themselves to love each other forever.
