Stone Circle

Fieldnotes

I too opted for the A30 layby route - just before a "no stopping" sign. An easy walk through a bit of gorse brought me to this stunning site - occupied at the time of my visit by a chap running thru some pagan rituals (and hearing voices, so he said). I was silenced by the power of this site - as soon as I entered the circle there was the most profound feeling of calm and tranquillity washing through me. I only get "feelings" of these sorts occasionally at sites, and those experienced here were as strong as I've ever encountered. Absolutely awestruck! Could have stayed for hours sitting in the centre despite the wet grass, but family left sitting in the car might have objected!
For me this was the single most inspiring site I've visited in Cornwall. Would be wonderful to be there in moonlight, I feel.
