Great photo of the 10 commandments stone

Back in July this year I did a post about the 10 commandments stone at Buckland Beacon – see here. Despite the stone having been restored in recent years the writing was still quite hard to read. The other day I was in the office of the Dartmoor National Park Authority when I saw a photograph of the stones taken in 1928 by WA Clements after he had finished the sculpting. The quality of the picture is fantastic and if you zoom in on the photo you can read all the words including Clement’s 11th commandment.
