Guys, we're just loving bipping around Britain and finding all these stone circles we never knew existed!

Mew know how much we love ancient standing stones and stone circles, see our previous trips to:

Here's a little bit of info from BBHQ's Historical Travel Guide, Smooch:

Greetings fellow travellers and history lovers!

During our recent visit to Cornwall, we had the purrleasure of exploring the Boscawen-Un stone circle, which was truly a pawe-inspiring experience. This ancient site, which dates back to the Bronze Age, specifically around 2500-1500 BC, is situated in a tranquil clearing surrounded by lush greenery. The circle comprises 19 granite stones, with the central stone standing tall above the rest.

While the exact purpose of the circle remains a mystery, many believe it was used for religious or ceremonial activities as is the general consenus of most of these types of ancient stone circles. The stones are believed to have been taken from a nearby quarry, but the exact location remains unknown. The stones' placement in the circle and the size of each stone is fascinating to observe, making it clear that great effort and skill went into building this site.

The Boscawen-Un stone circle is not just a standalone site. It aligns with other nearby ancient sites, which makes it even more intriguing. From the center of the circle, mew can see the hillfort of Caer Bran and the ancient burial mound of Chun Quoit. These alignments suggest that the site was used for astronomical observations and may have even served as a calendar.

If mew are interested in learning more about Cornwall's rich history, mew should visit Chysauster, an ancient village just a short drive away. Mew can see the remains of Iron Age houses and walk in the footsteps of our ancestors. The villages and coastline of Cornwall are also worth exploring, with their stunning views and picturesque locations.

Overall, visiting the Boscawen-Un stone circle was a fascinating glimpse into Cornwall's ancient past, and we would really recommend it to anypawdy visiting the area. It's an excellent opportunity to appreciate the incredible engineering and astronomical knowledge of our ancestors.

  1. We, too, are grateful for our veterans and their service for us all. We always love your cool selfies at such pawesome places!

  2. I am very thankful to our veterans and to all who made that ultimate sacrifice.

    This is a beautiful place and I always learn so much when you visit these sites.

  3. That is a fascinating stone circle! I know there are many in Devon and Cornwall but we have never been there. We have been to Chysauster though, and when we went to Skara Brea in the Orkneys many years later it reminded me a lot of Chysauster. The art is lovely and gives it a very moody effect.

  4. It neffur ceases to amaze Mummy how many stone circles there are in Britain, most of which She neffur knew existed. She loves reading your posts about them and We love having her read them to Us, and seeing the pictures.

  5. A wonderful tribute for Remembrance Sunday. It's so hard to think that those stones have been constructed so long ago and with only basic tools. Clearly and true marvels to mankind's strength in belief. If we can do that, then you'd think peace would be a doddle, right?

  6. Mew have shown so many stone places, I am thinking mew have made them all fur our entertainment. How can mew have so many in one small country. Thank you Melvyn fur your tribute to all Veterans effurry where.

  7. The veterans deserve all of our gratitude.
    Cornwall, eh? Another place I'd like to visit.
    Thanks for the art and to play.

  8. Lovely art and tribute to all souls who gave their lives.

  9. A lovely report about a circle I have never herd off. How interesting it links almost to other nearby sites.

    We salute Basil and the Fallen today with Basil's Crew.

  10. Can't tell you enough how I am LOVING these tours of stone circles!!!

  11. You guys were really stoned but you're looking good! Here's to all our heroes, they deserve the very best, always.

  12. Great selfie and very cool art> XO

  13. That was a cool stone circle!
    When petcretary was still living in Canada, Nov 11 was Remembrance Day...aka Poppy Day. So now each Nov 11, even though she lives in the USA she wears a poppy. Its sad that most peeps have no idea what the significance of that is. So she 'eduates' them if they ask.

    Glad the PA is feeling better.
