St Breock Downs Menhir (Standing Stone / Menhir) by Rhiannon Two stones in William Copeland Borlase's day, it would seem, but only one now? or is the drawing showing a bit of artistic license and the other still remains?

"..the tallest (13 feet 6 inches in height) on the summit of the beacon hill, and the shorter (eight feet high) on a less elevated slope, some eight or nine hundred yards to the east. Both these stones are spar stones, common to the country, rudely pitched on end in the ground, the largest of the two inclining considerably to the north."

Is the taller one still there but fallen over?
