First though, a quick stop at a minor landmark that many visitors to the area pass without a glance. At the meeting of several paths, a large recumbent boulder marks the boundaries of four parishes, hence its name! A crude cross has been carved into the surface of the boulder, but I strongly suspect that it has been used a meeting point – either of people or of territory – for a Very Long Time. Both Men Scryfa and some of the barrows up towards Nine Maidens are visible from here.
A naturally recumbent boulder, almost 3m long and incised with a (post-)medieval cross. Marks the boundaries of Zennor, Morvah, Madron and Gulval.
Added in view of proximity to many megalithic sites (and obviously "already there" judging by its attribution as a natural boulder). The fact that four parishes chose it as the point where their boundaries meet is certainly suggestive of longer-standing recognition of the stone in the locality.
Something to look out for on the way up to Nine Maidens anyway.
