This site is one of the best known megalithic structures in Britain. The name Men-an-Tol means simply ‘holed stone’ and despite having been considered a significant and popular monument from a very early date, its true purpose remains a mystery.
It’s a mystery to me how anyone finds their way to these historic sites in Cornwall, as they are not particularly well sign-posted and often involve squeezing the car into a tiny lay-by, before scaling a stile or two and tramping along a muddy lane. Cornwall Tourist Board “could do better”.
One week left to join in with Becky’s (“A life of a 40 something”) March challenge of square photographs with the theme:
- ‘Squared Squares’ – think multiple squares and squares within squares
- ‘Squaring the Circle’ – the perfect post will be a circle within a square
