Standing Stone / Menhir


Carfury menhir

SW440340 - I didn't have chance to visit this but it's mentioned in both Ian McNeil Cooke's 'Standing Stones of the Land's End' (1998 - Men-an-Tol Studio) and Craig Weatherhill's 'Belerion: Ancient Sites of Land's End' (Cornwall Books - 1981) as a little known and apparently
superb 3m tall menhir standing on a steep rough hillside with its base embedded in a low and ancient wall. The ground around its foot was excavated in 1958 by Vivien Russell and Peter Pool but nothing was found. Formerly known as the Cuckoo Rock.

I think that this is one of the most elegant menhirs to be found anywhere. It is simply beautiful. Posted by craig weatherhill
