Hautville Coit,
at Stanton Drew, in the manor of Keynsham. The tradition is that this coit was thrown there by the champion giant, Sir John Hautville, from Mary’s Knolle Hill, about a mile off, the place of his abode. The stone on the top of the hill, once thirty tons’ weight, is said to have been the clearing of the giant’s spade.   1
   The same is said of the Gog’magog of Cambridge.   2
