Near to Ilton in Somerset is a large stone protected by a moat.
The stone has an empty hole at its centre, where once a sword was forged and removed. Why is this large stone surrounded with a moat? Who decided to pay for the moat? Why would anyone build a deep moat around a large worthless stone?
The story of The Moated Stone us a free to download kindle for Amazon members and 99p for non-members. The author, David Burns, wrote the book was to 'put' Wadhams Castle (the Merryfield Estate) back on the map.
The aim is to add the "moat" back into local interest — see OS Explorer Map 128 — map reference 340-178 (look for the moat).
