Arthur's Stone (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Fieldnotes

Visited these on May 10th 2003, a bit rainy and we had a bit of trouble with the directions at first even though there was a sign and everything, it's simple when you know how. There were other visitors - a couple reading in a car enjoying the stones, and a family turned up as we left.

It is an enjoyable view from the stones and has that familiar feel that you get at other sites, is it almost a Deja Vu thing? Who knows, who cares, nice wine this...

It rained a bit but cleared wonderfully later on, wish I had stayed a couple of hours now, what a waste.

Anyway, it is another good site, and worth visiting Hay on Wye afterwards (the town of books).

Men-An-Tol (Holed Stone) — Fieldnotes

We visited this on Sunday 9th Sept '02. It was very busy, a long line of visitors were streaming from Men-an-tol as we arrived we met two German tourists who joked about the stones as a fertility object and said we had to pass through several times, we then amazingly had the stones to ourselves for 15 mins. There has been a camp fire built here recently but the stones were in great shape.

I dunno what it is but don't they just make you feel Good to visit?

Great week in Cornwall wish I'd seen a Fougou though.

Harold's Stones (Standing Stones) — Folklore

There was a recent sighting of a big cat in this area, so I was a bit wary as I ran around the wet field, so excuse the quality of the pictures I've submitted.

Today there was another report of a big cat on the prowl, the Beast of Bodmin on holiday?

43 years old and visiting more and more stones all the time, some may think I submit too many pics of the sites I visit, and I haven't visited many difficult sites yet, but I am a beginner, I've always been interested since I visited Stonehenge in the 70's when you could walk around the stones there. Then that TV show with old Copey turned me onto the book and the website and my couple of visits to the obvious sites in Cornwall and locally looked a bit sick. So I promise I will get the Ordnance map out and the compass and trek a bit for my art. I love photography and really enjoy trying to get a good pic of the stones and appreciate that I can be spoiling someones vibe at the stones as much as they are bugging me and praps we should all chill out a bit, weird that sometimes you get a place to yourself and other times its like rush hour.

Love the stones, and I keep looking at my local maps for the unphotographed locally.

There will be more
