Came here again after nearly 8 years,it's still there but the area is getting very overgrown.When I got back to Zennor the farmer congratulated me on my achievement. hamish Posted by hamish

This is a Logan Stone and is shaped like a stone axe.It will move but with great difficulty.You have to fight your way through lots of furze to get there but is worth the visit. hamish Posted by hamish

"It was said that if you touch a Logan stone nine times at mid-night,any woman will become a witch.A more certain plan is to get on the Giants Rock at Zennor church-town nine times without shaking it.Seeing that this rock was at one time a very sensitive Logan Stone,the task was somewhat diffucult."
