    When I was a kid we were told that the one in Picton Rd. was a meteorite. I like that story better.

    We used to walk past the one in Coronation Park on the way to Crosby Baths. I must have read that sign hundreds of times without understanding what it meant but it did have the eventual effect of opening up a sense of strangeness and wonder about the world. But I guess that's why these things were put on show in the first place...

    Further afield, in Chester there is a big boulder known as the Gloverstone, now in the little park beneath Bonewaldesthorne's Tower but which once defined the boundary between the jurististiction of the city and the castle and at which spot countless condemned prisoners were handed over from the castle to be executed by the city authorities at the Northgate and Boughton.
