“Well Worth a Visit”

Reviewed 13 June 2016

If your in the area it is well worth a visit to see this site and arrangement of stones which is there since monolithic times and is very close to the road for viewing. It is located about .5 mile past the turn for Lamorna Cove coming from Penzance. Worth a visit.

Taken in on a little ancient site exploration.
Fascinating and always gives a pause for thought.
Previous directions in reviews will help you find it.

Well worth the walk. Not a difficult walk to see this ring, you can also take in the Men an Tol en route. On a good day you can see the sea on four sides which might be why the circle is there in the first place.
According to tradition (obviously wrong for so many reasons) this is the bit of Cornwall Christ visited on one of his childhood trips with Joseph of Arithimea.
Even at the height of summer it's quiet and peaceful.
I strongly recommend you finish your walk at the Lanyon Tea rooms-excellent cream tea.

We took in this place as part of a short tour og the Ancients with our friends. Have passed this many times and as with the other curio's that Cornwall is so fortunate to posses it is always a joy to take friends who have a similar interest to go see.
Make that tiny effort.

This circle is one of a set which includes Boscawen-un, The merry maidens of Buryan and Tregeseal East in this "Holy land of Stone circles". Please help the CASPN (Cornish Ancient sites protection Network) to preserve the place by following the countryside code and treating it with the respect and veneration it deserves. It is not known what happened to the stones which are missing from the circle. Maybe someday the circle can be restored from the most likely stones lying nearby. In ancient times this circle was in a woodland glade linked by holy paths to the other circles, almost certainly devoted to moon worship and fertility celebrations. This site is not the easiest to locate. You need to know how to use an OS map and compass.
