Mearing Stone 10 on Island Eddy
Mearing Stone 10 on Island Eddy
This "Mearing Stone" is one of several on Island Eddy. Seaweed was an important fertilizer in times gone by, and the strand was divided into sections of equal area; with the right to gather seaweed in each section being assigned to one family.
This is one of only a few coastal mearing stones still in situ.
