|Description ||One thing the guide books fail to mention is the stones that line the hillside.These make this site unique amongst those I have visited and it makes me wonder if those surrounding other dolmens were put there not to hold in earth mounds but some form of energy.To quote(?)someone "If Roman remains have been covered by earth why have Neolithic remains been uncovered?"|
| Hi sem - we looked at the line of stones going up the hillside today, and they are certainly a striking feature - as you say, they would each look massive if the quoit itself wasn't there! Looking at the site from across the bay though, I think there may be a fairly 'natural' explanation, as all the stones alongside the quoit seem to be a natural fault line.|
The line immediately alongside the quoit actually seems to continue both down the slope to the sea, and upwards over the hill - I will post some pictures to show what I mean.
| sem - another picture posted today to explain what I meant - one of the few benefits of the weather being a chance to sort out old photos!|
