The Four Parish Stone

Natural Rock Feature


A naturally recumbent boulder, almost 3m long and incised with a (post-)medieval cross. Marks the boundaries of Zennor, Morvah, Madron and Gulval.

Added in view of proximity to many megalithic sites (and obviously "already there" judging by its attribution as a natural boulder). The fact that four parishes chose it as the point where their boundaries meet is certainly suggestive of longer-standing recognition of the stone in the locality.

Something to look out for on the way up to Nine Maidens anyway.
