About

The imposing Strangford Stone is the tallest megalith in the British Isles.  It was quarried from the Mourne Mountains and now stands tall in Delamont Country Park, Killyleagh facing the Mournes.  The Strangford Stone Project was funded by the Millennium Commission and permission was granted by Down District Council for Delamont Country Park to become home to the stone.  On 26 June 1999, 1,000 young people, aged between 14 and 20, assembled at Delamont Country Park to pull the large granite megalith to the elevated site which boats superb views over Strangford Lough and towards Slieve Croob and the Mountains of Mourne.  The stone stands twelve and a half meters high and weighs 47 tonne.
