The Sealed Stone

A boulder has been placed at the corner of this canal house in Utrecht. It has been placed there to protect the corner for damage of carriage weels. The story goes that devil's would come at night and shoot marbles with it. Neighbours were fed up with the noices and have put the stone on a chain. This after a priest had driven out the the devils. Allready as far back as 1520 the scoffing stone was called 'the sealed stone'.

It's really true... :)
