Reflection on the Village Stone

The Village Stone was an after thought - it was not originally planned in the project. But as Sites of Meaning came to an end the Parish Council, among others, suggested a central stone to act as a locator to the boundary stones.
The stone takes the form of a view finder (but without views!). The first line of each inscription points roughly to its location on the parish boundary. The spiral motif suggests the growth and development of Sites of Meaning.
