the giants rock. zennor.

the giants rock. zennor. this massive natural rock feature that has been associated by william borlase (and others) with a destroyed chambered tomb of the same name. this logan rock (balancing stone) is approx. 5.5m by 2.0m and 1.0m thick. it is said that it still rocks but It seems to have moved sufficiently to prevent this now. there is a natural rock basin on its upper surface and a small cup-mark on the higher southern end that seems artificial and suggests the rock may have been part of a larger ceremonial complex that included the chambered tomb and standing stone in its immediate vicinity. it is set against zennor hill with it’s possible enclosure, propped stones and it’s own logan rock and can be seen here in the background
