The Popping Stone

The Popping Stone is an enigmatic feature of the Spa Hotel gounds. Although hardly mentioned before the 1870s, the innuendo around the Popping Stone has been a central part of the Spa's allure. The legends attached to it, and its dramatic change in shape, are documented in my website.
