Longstone

The Longstone is near the hamlet of Mottistone, close to the south west coast of the Isle of Wight. It is the only Megalithic monument on the Island.

The Longstone consists of two pieces of local greensand sandstone probably from a vein 100m away. The larger stands at 3.9m (13 feet) and the smaller lies at its foot. They are on the edge of a wood in small fenced enclosure just off Strawberry Lane, near Mottistone. The name Mottistone (the Speaker’s or pleader’s stone) almost certainly derives from the Longstone. The stones and the surrounding land are in the care of the National Trust and are open to the public. Until the mid nineteenth century the smaller stone was further south but in 1856 a local landowner, Lord Dillon, had it turned over to discover if it had a mortise hole (it did not). Its present position has led to fanciful tales of its being a sacrificial altar stone and, in common with many other megalithic monuments, modern pagan meetings and rituals are associated with it.[1]

Portal Opening

We were given an opportunity to journey into a portal connecting between the Megalith known as the Longstone located on the Isle of Wight and a Irish Dolmen gateway. We were taken to an opening linking underground to a Irish/Celtic druid dolmen that further linked into the dynastic lineage of Egypt where at a certain point in the histories, ( the timelines) we were shown a “rip in time” occurred. (see Gog and Magog)
