Thief took ancient bluestone for their garden

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Ancient stones used to build Stonehenge are being stolen, police have warned, as one thief used it as a garden ornament.

"The thief swiped the bluestone last week from the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire, Wales, where some of the stone used for the Wiltshire monument was quarried and transported.

"Officers tracked it down to a garden 10 miles away.

"The person responsible said they weren't aware it was illegal to remove it from the area."

Full short report at the UK Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/01/12/thief-stole-ancient-stones-used-build-stonehenge-use-garden/

 

"A reminder is now being issued that it is illegal to remove bluestone – which is believed to have spiritual and healing powers – from its natural area."

It has been repaired several times over the years.  Probably looks slightly different from its original look.
