Stone Circle


About half-a-mile to the south of Carn Kenidjack is an ancient stone circle, about sixty feet in diameter, consisting of twelve upright stones, which are on the average three feet in height above the surface of the ground. The country people generally call this circle of stones the Merry Maidens.
The map calls the area 'Nine Maidens Common'.

From Rambles in Western Cornwall by the Footsteps of the Giants by J O Halliwell Phillipps (1861).
