Mentioned in "The Romance of the Stones" as a possible menhir it was erected in 1980 when the road was being improved. Not easily missed! it sits beside the road not far from Chun Quoit. Is it or isn't it? was it or wasn't it?
Does it matter....how do we know every other stone is original, many of the stone circles in Cornwall were reerected in the late 1800's early 1900's and not allways using the original stones.
This site may or may not be a genuine longstone, but all the evidence points to it being ok. Apparently this fine 11 foot stone was found buried in a Cornish hedge by landscape contractors who were widening the driveway to the farm. They erected it in the hedge, and it forms a really impressive sight, visible from a long way off and now being colonised by rampant ivy. No-one cal really say if it was once standing, but it looks and feels the part, and lots of ex-longstones still lie in hedges just waiting to be set up again. Judge for yourself !
This menhir is not in either Craig Weatherhill's 'Belerion: Ancient Sites of Land's End' (Cornwall Books - 1981) or in Ian McNeil Cooke's 'Standing Stones of the Land's End' (1998 Men-an-Tol
Studio), but heh, Cornwall is full of ancient sites. Maybe this is just one that has yet to be realised, or one that has been so messed up through history that it's hard to be sure what the reality is.
