How To Get There

From Chipping Norton follow the A361 south for around half a mile. Turn left on to the B4026 towards Charlbury. After 4 miles you'll reach the village of Spelsbury. Here turn left on to the Taston Road. The stone is located against a wall just a few yards from the village green at Taston.

The Thor Stone stands around 7 feet tall and is clearly visible amongst the bushes by a garden wall. It is said that the cross on the village green was erected to quash the "evil influence" of the standing stone!
