Welcome to the web site for Stonehouse History Group

Millennium Stone

The Millennium Stone was erected in the High Street in the year 2000.

The design represents a doorway from one millennium to the next or from the present to the future; it also recalls the stone house after which Stonehouse is believed to be named.


On it are carved symbols of the town and the area using several of the ideas suggested by members of the public during the research phase of the project. Children (or very keen adults) are able to climb through the opening.
