A fact not mentioned about bluestone (that all of us locals know) is the
strange magnetic property of it.
Drive any vehicle from a small car to a tractor to near the top of the
Preseli road, put the gear into neutral and watch it slowly keep creeping UP
the hill! Really, it's true. I have personally experienced it in four
Surely this unique property of the stone is why the people of Wiltshire
chose to import it over so long and difficult a route to build Stonehenge
It's worth a holiday there to see for yourself!
