The Cheesewring

Rocky Outcrop


In his 'Popular Romances of the West of England' Hunt describes a rock in Looe that turns around 3 times when it hears a cock crow. He adds:
The topmost stone of that curious pile of rocks in the parish of St Cleer known as the Cheesewring is gifted in like manner. Even now the poultry-yards are very distant, but in ancient days the cocks must have crowed most lustily, to have produced vibrations on either the sensitive rock or the tympanum of man.
