Luxulyan Arse Stones

Natural Rock Feature


Failed visit 18.4.12

Before setting out on my little trip to Cornwall this was one site that I really wanted to visit.
Looking at the photo and the name it was a 'must see'. Childish I know but there you are!

As we drove around the maze of country lanes trying to find said stone Dafydd became very excited when i showed him the photo and said we were looking for a stone which looked like a large bum! (see, it's a male thing!)

We both eagerly looked out the windows whilst Karen did the sensible thing and did the driving along the windy, narrow lanes. Every now and then we would stop and I would clamber up a bank to peer into likely looking fields.

Unfortunately we couldn't find the stone. I am sure we were close as we passed several fields which had masses of large boulders scattered around and a few of them could easily have been taken for fallen Dolmens. There certainly wouldn't have been a shortage of material for tomb building in ancient times in this area.

Despite our best efforts we failed to find the Arse Stones. What a bummer.............................!

(This must have made an impression on Dafydd as he continued his 'search' for the stone for the rest of the holiday!!)
