Standing Stone / Menhir


The moondogchickengoosestone, as we preferred to call it, stands in a field opposite Porthmeor farmhouse and whenever we happened to pass it, morning, noon or night, some kind of Old MacDonald thing was going on.... dogs, horses, geese, chooks, cows...

On the way to see the fullmoon rise over Lanyon Quoit, we passed this stone and as the car swung round the corner by this stone, the full moon appeared in the sky straight in front, almost dazzling us, huge and low and bright. And in the corner of my eye I saw a sheepdog at the roadside, spinning round and round and round chasing its tail in the moonlight.

This stone does crazy things to animals.
