The White Horse Stone, near Blue Bell Hill, Kent
Close to the Pilgrims Way as it crosses the busy A229 and the Channel Tunnel Rail Link is the White Horse Stone the white horse being the symbol of Kent. According to legend the stone marks the grave of the Saxon chieftain Horsa, though this sarsen stone is more likely a prehistoric megalith. (The group of German women seen in the photograph had been told that the stone was endowed with the mystical properties of a maiden stone.)
