|Description ||The name "Maen" Castle is from the Cornish for 'stone', and that describes it quite well. This exposed granite headland has many boulders and outcrops, and the promontory fort has little room for occupation. It is thought to be associated with field systems on the slope immediately to the east.
The headland in the distance is Dr Syntax's Head at Land's End, with the Longships rocks and lighthouse offshore.|
| Some lovely pictures of all these wonderful cliffy places. Places I haven't been for too long. Any remnants of that wrecked ship still down there ? I can't see anything, but it might have been behind you. |
And did you find Dr Syntax's head ? Or the other one - Dr Johnson I believe. I bet I couldn't find them anymore.
| The rear end (aft) of the wreck is still there in Castle Zawn, its off to the right. More cliffy pics to come later.|
