The Merry Maidens

Stone Circle


TC Lethbridge wrote of his peculiar experiences at the Merry Maidens (in 'Legends of the Sons of God'). Was it just a subconscious response to the circle's name? or something else..
"As soon as the pendulum started to swing, a strange thing happened.. [it] shot out until it was circling nearly horizontally to the ground. The stone itself, which must have weighed over a ton, felt as if it were rocking and almost dancing about. This was quite alarming but I stuck to my counting..
The next day I sent my wife up alone to see what happened to her. She had the same experience. It has happened nowhere else. The Pipers were mute and so were many crosses and other monuments which I have tried. But most circular monuments are now incomplete and perhaps something has gone from them."
