Another time

This big boulder of Gunnars Sten is found on a private lot, which have been a gravel dig, years ago. The boulder was buried in the gravel, but on the behest of the owner; Gunner, it was raised up nearby. I have named it after the owner of the area, both at the time it was excavated and when I visited it in 2018.
It can only be visited after appointment with the owner.

Location: Skælskørvej 26, 4180 Sorø.
GPS: 55.393932, 11.548145.

Size: 4,1 metres high, 1,5 metres wide and 2,9 meters long. It is 8,3 metres in circumference.

Meaning of the name: Gunnar's Boulder.

Material: Rough granite.

Origin: It is said to originate from Norway.

Legend: A local stonecutter wanted it for a statue of the Danish queen; Margrethe 2., for her 50. reign anniversary, but was not able to find the sufficient founding.
