My favourite. The fallen stone on the left has been re-erected now. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

A fabulous series of sketches Rhiannon. Thanks for putting them up on TMA. tjj Posted by tjj

It's a pleasure, and it helps that Mr Borlase makes it very easy to work out which ones they are, June! His Irish book is on the Internet Archive too but I'm not so good at identifying those, there are so many and I don't recognise the names. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

Thanks Rhiannon, I'll have a look to see if I recognise anything. I only really know the stone circles in West Cork and the Beara Peninsula. tjj Posted by tjj

Naenia Cornubiae is a great book, I have a reprinted version from about 15 years ago. I didn't realise WC Borlase travelled to Ireland. I think he was the grandson of the earlier (more famous) William Borlase. I've only ever seen one copy of *his* Cornwall book and it was mighty expensive. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

If you post the link Rhiannon I would enjoy trying to figure some of them out. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Here you are, Ryaner, happy browsing -[]=borlase+dolmens&sort=titleSorter
I think he travelled all over the place so there are even sections about stones in India and Africa.
