Carbis Bay Longstone

Standing Stone / Menhir


I visited this site especially for the "I'm only 5000 years old exhibition:

I'd seen a sketch of the site in a book. A couple of things have changed since the sketch was made, the bus stop is now a little further away and a litter bin has been added in the last couple years!

The area arond this site is known as Longstone.
There is an estate map dated 1820 which is believed to be the earlieat recorded mention of this site.
Charles Henderson the Cornish Historian noted the site in the early Twentieth century and saw that the stone had been cut down in size.

Looks rather sad and forgotten.
