I agree with so many others that have posted - not worth a long trip to see but if it’s on your way then do stop by. It is very thought provoking.

The poor thing is all by itself out in the field in the middle of no where. Such an oddity really. It is very big (100 tonnes), tall (9.5 meters), slender, and a rather curious shape. Made of pinkish granite....use to have a cross on...More
