Arthur's Stone

Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


Visited Arthurs Stone whilst on family holiday in the area. So called because this area is rumoured to be the site of an Arthurian battle. The day was warm but overcast. Two families were already there but they did not stay for long - the obligatory photo shoot and on their way. It is a burial chamber that has collapsed on itself but is still srtiking none the less. The countryside around here is awe inspiring and the chamber is set on high ground for whcih must have been an inspiring site for our ancestors. There were some flowers left on the stones but I could not tell what sort - only hope they were not wild flowers! Children spotted some field voles in the grass by one of the fence posts. Tempted them out with some apple. If you go you will see their track marks in the grass. What a nice place to live.

This is my second visit here - previously back in 1995. Nothing has changed and that is very satisfying. Time will always stand still at Arthurs Stone.
