Thomas Hardy Locations, Tess of the d'Urbervilles (3)
The Cross-in-Hand stone is on the Holywell to Minterne
Magna road high above the Vale of Blackmore, just west of High Stoy. Here, in the novel, Alec d'Urberville made Tess swear on the stone that she would never tempt him again. She later found out from a local shepherd that the stone signifies a bad omen. The actual purpose and origin of the stone is unknown.
