Mên-an-Tol Standing Stones, Cornwall.

On the wildest, most westerly moors in Cornwall there is a group of standing stones quite unlike any others in Britain. The central stone of Mên-an-Tol (Cornish for “the hole stone”) is a hollowed out circle. Thought to date back to Neolithic times, local folklore says that the hole in the stone is guarded by a piskie who will bring good health to any child who passes through the stone. Well, I didn’t see the fairy when I went  there… but I did have a lovely walk and took a couple of photos for you 🙂
