Cocking Church (By grandad1950)

This tiny church dating from the 11 C is tucked away in woods in the village of Cocking West Sussex. The woods make it tricky to fly and is best in the winter. Very interesting inside the church.

Long Meg and her Daughters (By D0c.Col)

The most famous of the many legends that surround the stones is that they were once a coven of witches who were turned to stone by a wizard from Scotland named Michael Scot. It is said the stones cannot be counted – but, if anyone is able to count them twice and come to the same total – the spell will be broken or it will bring very bad luck. Another legend states that if you walk round the circles and count the number of stones correctly, then put your ear to Long Meg, you will hear her whisper. The name itself is said to come from a local witch, Meg of Meldon, who was alive in the early 17th century. From a certain angle, the Long Meg stone resembles the profile of a witch, facing the stones. However that Meg of Meldon is the name given to Margaret Fenwick (née Selsby) who lived at Meldon near Morpeth, Northumberland, some 70 miles from these stones.

There is a large carpark just down the lane from the stones that is marked in DS and Penrith is just a few miles away.
