SO2098 : The Hoare Stone

taken 1 year ago, near to Garthmyl, Powys, Great Britain

The Hoare Stone
The Hoare Stone
This large stone, a conglomerate, is older than the Roman Fort (The Gaer or Lavrobrinta) which is dated c.80AD. It seems to have acted as a marker for the ford over the Severn which was the main crossing point of the river from England to the upper Severn valley (Montgomeryshire). The ford was the reason for locating the Roman fort at this spot.
