All I can say is I am flabbergasted this has so many four or five ratings. I think some people need to get out more. Five rating? Surely that would be for Avebury, Stonehenge or the Cheesewring. Quite underwhelming. No atmosphere, nothing. Unintelligible writing. I...More

This stone is just off the road with a parking bay next to it. There is no charge. It is well worth stopping to look at read a bit about what it denotes.

Well kept, breath taking views. Slightly difficult stone styles to navigate on walking route but other than that easy to locate. Nice slice of Cornish history

Worth stopping for 5 minutes if you're on the way to Minions for the famous road sign. Space for a couple of cars to park although be careful pulling out as visibility isn't great and the road is quite fast. The stones are located in...More
