| That's interesting. Where's the site page?|
| Could those circular depressions possibly be natural - only this particular set of basins seem quite unusual? IIRC the one on Kestor Rock on Dartmoor is just one single round basin, like the right-hand one here.|
(Now I wonder if the crescent-shaped stone on Belstone Tor is one of these, broken in half and slipped sideways off the pile - OR man-handled at some point in time??)
I read somewhere that stones like the famous Men an Tol were taken by ancient monument builders from the top capstone of a pile of rock like this. [Their circular hole having been made smooth by the movement of a pebble or some small stones moving around in rainwater over the centuries.]
| granite does not naturally erode like this . Pebble erosion is common where there is flowing water but this is on the uppermost stone. Look not at the basin but the relief it has left ! Site set up now at "sculptured stones" King arthurs sword. |
