Kingston’s Coronation Stone

Kingston’s Coronation Stone stands slightly ignored outside the Guildhall.

In The Daily Telegraph Philip Johnson compares it to the Stone of Scone which fits under the Coronation Chair at Westminster Abbey but is kept in Scotland.

He suggests that, should the Scots vote yes, the Kingston stone should get a higher profile.

What he does not mention is that this Saxon stone is soon to be moved back to its original site within the area now occupied by Kingston parish church.
