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

many of the quoits in west cornwall have their capstones supported by four main stones making up the opposing sides with a blocking and back stone completing the enclosure. some now have stones fallen or removed and some have been rebuilt in relatively recent times. the earliest megaliths in cornwall announcing the transition to farming or the hearding of cattle and the onset of neolithic practices. the capstones are seemingly carefully chosen to resemble the tors that surround and are intervisible with them. interestingly many have had beach pepples found within or near them

stripple stones circle henge. bodmin moor.

stripple stones circle henge. bodmin moor. this monument has been described as the only circle-henge in south-west england that has many of unique features. the circle was originally ovoid in plan and measured 46.3m by 43.3m. until recently It consisted of only four upright stones and the remains of nine others, most of which have now been re-erected. their height varies from 1.0m to 2.74m unusually tall for stone circles in other parts of cornwall. there is a large centre stone, now recumbent which would have stood about 2.9m high. the stone circle is surrounded by a low fragmentary bank with an internal ditch, the bank 3.0m to 4.5m wide and up to 0.5m high and with an outer diameter probably in the region of 73m by 70m. it also had with a causewayed entrance, 2.7m wide, on the WSW side leading up to two remarkable shaped stones seen in this shot. like most of the circles on bodmin it most likely relates to nearby sacred hills here to hawks tor. also rough tor can be clearly viewed in the near distance-henge
