Men Amber

Natural Rock Feature

Men Amber (Natural Rock Feature) by Rhiannon

"This stone is in the parish of Sithney, on the property of C.W. Popham, Esq., of Trevarno. It was formerly a logan-stone, but was thrown off its balance in the time of Cromwell, by Shrubshall, then governor of Pendennis. - The stone is 11 feet long from east to west; depth 4 feet. Men Amber is a corruption of Men-an-bar, which signifies, the top stone."
