Another time

This big boulder of Grydestenen is found along the road Strandvejen, between Hasmark and Otterup, between to farmhouses. It have been a way larger boulder, but it have been blown up into smaller pieces. Four are still here, and the bigger one is still impressive.

Location: Strandvejen 175, 5450 Otterup.
GPS: 55.547653, 10.439938

Size: The big one is still 1,8 metres high, 2,8 metres wide and 4,6 meters long.

Meaning of the name: The pot stone.

Material: Gnejs.

Origin: Southern Sweden.

Legends: According to the legend, Grydestenen was thrown by a giant from Munkebo Bakke or Hindsholm at Norup Church, as the giant did not like the church bell sound.
Another story tells of a bet between two giants. One giant should hit Norup Church down, but failed.
The stone is told to rotate, when it smells freshly baked bread - and all three times when the baker passes by using fresh bread.
