That is massive indeed. George Borrow got a bit carried away when he saw it (I would blush if I wrote what his books says). I can't find any folklore which is strange. Unless such things are so commonplace in Cornwall that they don't deserve mention. I saw this
which suggests someone was once using it as a tool shed. How very practical.

Yeah, Cornwall is a bit 'different'... but in a nice way, if you know what I mean? The accents and everything. I've wanted to marry Caroline Katz ever since I first saw Doc Martin! Think it has a similar vibe to SW Ireland, all that 'ancient-ness' just bubbling away under the surface and percolating to the top every here and there.
