  • A classic Cornish stone circle of granite stones. Great energy here. Parking very close by and a short walk across flat grass  more »
  • We were out for a bit of a drive when we stopped at the M/m. The grass had been cut. We had a nice wonder round the stones. I told my daughter the story of how they are there. Doesn't take long to see...  more »

  • Great to see such a well formed, still intact stone circle. Very easy to get to, with parking right beside the road and a short walk to the circle itself.
  • There is a small parking area (3-4 cars) right beside the road. The stone circle can be reached after just 100m or so. It's fine but not overwhelming.
  • No queueing, no crowds, just you and nature and all your questions about why these 19 stones are positioned here in a perfectly round circle.
  • A Neolithic Stone circle, set in the beautiful Cornish countryside.
  • Very nice and tranquil place! Beautiful landscape and interesting history. It was not much information at the site so I recommend reading about it before the visit. Easy to find and parking is free. When we visited it was no other people there, a great contrast to Stonehenge where it was crowded.
