|Description ||Sunday I had a day walking on northwestern Bodmin moor, and visited about a dozen prehistoric sites. While on King Arthurís Downs, I wondered whether I had found a possible stone row, at SX137775. Unusual for round here I agree, but it wouldnt be too dissimilar to the Nine Maidens row at St Breock. |
Walk eastwards from the two circles along the edge of the southern wall, and after a couple of hundred yards can be seen a large pointed stone flat to the ground. This stone is about three and a half metres long, and about a metre wide at the thicker end, which is adjacent to the wall. What I noticed that was odd about this stone, was the way that the wall seemed to have a little bump in it, and looked very like it had been built to detour around the stone, if it had been standing. It reminded me of the way the wall detours round the Gun Rith menhir, down near the Merry Maidens. It wouldnít surprise me at all if this large stone had once been a large upright menhir.
