Fernacre (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

I spent a couple of hours yesterday photographing both Fernacre and Louden Hill stone circles, including making a 360° panorama of each. It was a beautiful morning and well worth the walk with a heavy camera bag and tripod.

I hope it's OK to put a link to the one of Fernacre here as there's no way to add the panorama. (Admin - please delete this if it's breaking any rules.)

St Breock Downs Menhir (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Despite the fact that the wind farm windmills have gone (maybe only temporarily) the field is still surrounded by a barbed wire fence.

Men Gurta (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

I visited here a couple of weeks ago and there is now a signpost marked 'St Breock Downs Monolith' (no idea why they don't use its Celtic name), but as Men Gurta is only about 15 metres from the track of the Saint's Way it's probably easier just to follow those signs once you're on St Breock Downs.

The stone itself is still kept free of gorse, and there is a new Cornish Heritage Trust information panel near the stone.

The previously mentioned wind farm windmills aren't there at the moment, but there are still some huts and portacabins which make it look like they will be erecting some new ones in the not too distant future.
