|Description ||Angie at Men Scryfa - approx 2.30pm on 9th March 2004.
(I am 5'4" for comparison.) The carved Roman letters were reasonably clear then. In the distance is the amusingly-named 'Ding Dong' mine, and behind me, the wall bordering the lane between the stile-access to Men an Tol and the open moorland leading to Boskednan (Nine Maidens) circle. Because the lane can get very muddy in this area, the boots were very welcome!
All the fields around here are bordered with walls of stones that looked as if they once-upon-a-time belonged to avenues and circles. The whole area could have been a huge ceremonial centre. It would be great to see how it looked before the first farmers intervened!
(It is worth making a detour to Carn Galva for the spectacular views of the NW coast. That day was beautiful: sunny, with a very cold NE wind - hence the layers!)|
|Inscription is really clear in this shot and the inclusion of a figure is always a good way of showing scale. Nice to see what a good looking bunch our contributors really are.|
|It's amazing how many pics there are where the Ding Dong shows up |
