Stone Circle


Google Books

Supplement to the London Review for Saturday, September 28th, 1861.

Once upon a time the circle had a hedge running through it - "a real good bushy hedge". If you have a curious whim to see what it looked like, there are a pair of drawings here.

Only a few years after, the hedge had been removed by a more sympathetic landowner (the aptly named Miss Carne from Penzance) who had also popped a fence round the stones and secured them from 'accidental or wilful mutilation'.

Excellent link, thanks. I'd always wondered about the whereabouts of the hedge line. Now I know! ocifant Posted by ocifant
