Rock And Roll


This large lump of sandstone is called the Hemlock Stone and is situated in a park at Bramcote. There are quite a few myths of how it arrived there, the best being that it was thrown by a giant from Ireland. Another suggests that it was used by druids. Today it is often used to let off fireworks from and every year locals gather in the park opposite to produce the 'Hemlock Happening'.
