St. Levan's Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Visited as a slight detour from a coast path walk from Land's End to Treen. The stone is an oddity, it reminds me of a big stone beetle and must have predated the church being sited here. There are several ancient stone crosses in the churchyard, one of which is of a respectable "menhir" height. [Not very prehistoric, but there are some good carved bench ends inside the church too.]

Further back up the coast path we passed the remains of St Levan's Well, but didn't linger to try the water - we were looking forward to a different kind of drink at the Logan Rock at Treen!
