|Description ||The menhir concerned originally sat in a field, and then was removed by the farmer (which broke over a foot off the top of the stone) and dumped nearby in the field perimeter; upon the intervention of Cornwall Archaeology, it was re-erected in the field boundary. Subsequently, the farmer then enclosed
the menhir with 3 stakes & barbed wire, and wrapped the circa 8ft stone from bottom to near top in chicken wire. When I visited, I eventually found this stone wrapped in ivy, brambles, nettles etc etc etc. The ivy interlocks the chicken mesh solidly to the stone's surface. It is in a sorry state.
|It's no wonder I couldn't find it.|
|Same here. I wandered around for ages last year looking for this. Now I know what to look for, I may make another attempt next month when I'm down there...|
