|Description ||These are in M Scott Peck's "In Search of Stones. He writes, (page 68-69), "I shortly spied our first standing stones or menhirs. They stood about ten feet tall, two of them thirty yards apart, anchored in a little patch of untilled moorland. We stopped to gape in awe. A little part of our awe was their unpredictability. They had not been marked on our map. Nor mentioned in our guidebooks. They were not there to be searched for. They were simply there, just off a major road, nonchalantly waiting for anyone with the eyes to see. |
They pointed to the sky. Once, perhaps, there had been more of them, but I doubt it because they seem such a pair. They were of remarkably similar shape and size, and both were slightly slanted in the same direction as we were heading, almost as if to urge us forward. They looked like they possessed energy. We would have liked to have touched them, but they were guarded both by thick barbed wire at the edge of the road and by the pouring rain. So we had to content ourselves with examining them from a distance. They appeared relatively smooth, and I wondered if they had been deliberately quarried as a pair."
