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."
