Two Cornish monuments.

Hello All,

Here are two images from the summer from Cornwall, first up Men-An-Tol Holed Stone and second Lanyon Quoit with old mine steam engine house, not sure on my Geology on the left a Granite Tore emerging from the earth.

Both images taken with OM D E M1 and 12-40 f2.8 Pro.

Interesting stones Thomas. Any idea why that one has a large hole? And why it's planted in the ground like it is?

Hi Phil,

I think the story goes that if on a full moon a woman passes through the stone backwards seven times then she will become pregnant other legend states if a child had some illness like Rickets they would be cured of that too by passing through the stone.

These are to name but a few other stories passed down through folklore! Men-an-Tol literally means Hole Stone and dates from late Neolithic or early Bronze age.

Re: Two Cornish monuments.

Nice images, the folklore stories add an air of mystery to the rocks.

Might that account for the birth of a backward child? (I'm leaving )
