Another postcard shot I'm afraid!

This monolith was left behind by 19th century quarrymen who quarried Purbeck Pond Freestone at St. Albans Head (also known as St. Aldhelms Head).

Its amazing how it is still standing after all these years and there are one or two huge cracks in the rock!

Thanks to all those that clicked, commented or voted on yesterdays upload, I hadn't quite expected that so many of you would have liked it!

Have a great weekend, be it out and about or at home catching the olympics... Aren't us Brits doing well.

I bet a few have tried to push it over! A good angle to show it at it's most precarious, Mark.
