Dozmary Pool (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) — Fieldnotes

Having lived in the area I had heard all about the legends of Dozmary Pool being bottomless and the last resting place for Excalibur.

A pre-teenage swimming party by myself and friends in 1983 in a bid to search for excalibur revealed that the pool was not bottomless and the bed littered with bottles of wine.

A local legend has it that the name of the pool comes from Dozy Mary, a lazy minded girl who was murdered here.

Trethevy Quoit (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Fieldnotes

Many years ago I lived in Darite and Trethevy Quoit was a popular place to visit. However, one mystery always nagged at the back of my mind, what was that hole in the top slab for? Some reports suggest that it was carved by a young man as a tribute to his sweetheart. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Trethevy Quoit has to be one of the best preserved sites I have visited, in spite of being so accessible.
