“Naughty, naughty, go and stand on the Chiddingstone!” What!

Read about the stone below the picture.

The Chiddingstone is in the village of Chiddingstone in Kent, England. My friend Anna told me one of the legends about the Chiddingstone.

“This is the Chiddingstone itself. So named because naughty ones had to stand on it and be “chided” by the other people of the village! “

Perhaps this is where the word “chide”comes from?

The picture is of Anna and her dear companion Kiera.
