Guys this place is so pawesome, and there was nopawdy around apart from us, well it was rather fluffing foggy, so who wants to drive around in those conditions?! 

We didn't stay long as Fudge complained that the fog made his supurr floofy fur frizzy, and mew no there's nothing worse than frizzy fur! MOL

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!

Cornwall is a county steeped in history and culture, and one of the most intriguing historical sites in the area is the Hurlers Stone Circle. Located on Bodmin Moor, the Hurlers Stone Circle is made up of three large stone circles that date back to the Bronze Age.

The Hurlers Stone Circle was built around 1500 BC, making it one of the oldest and most significant historical sites in Cornwall. The site is made up of three circles, with the largest circle measuring over 40 meters in diameter. The stones themselves are impressive in size, with some standing over 2 meters tall.

While it is not known exactly what the Hurlers Stone Circle was used for, many historians believe it was used for religious ceremonies. The site's location on Bodmin Moor suggests that it may have been an important gathering place for the surrounding communities.

In addition to the Hurlers Stone Circle, there are several other interesting historical sites nearby. The Cheesewring is a natural rock formation that has been shaped over time by the elements. It is located just a short walk from the Hurlers Stone Circle and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

Another nearby historical site is the Trethevy Quoit, a Neolithic burial chamber which dates back to around 3500 BC. The chamber is made up of huge stones and is believed to have been used as a place of worship.

Overall, the Hurlers Stone Circle is a fascinating historical site that offers a glimpse into Cornwall's ancient past. Its impressive size and mysterious origins make it a pawesome destination for anypawdy interested in history and culture.

We're off to have a quick snooze, and if it's a bit warmer later we may go for a little garden safari before lunch. This afternoon our plan is get snuggled in front of the fire as the boiler has broken again, yep the new pump fitted last month, was not the problem (just as the P.A. suspected), and now we have to wait until Wednesday until the new boiler technichian gets here to tell us what the issue is. From what we've told him, we may need a new part at a cost of £450.00 - oh joy and happiness - NOT! Especially since we just paid £270.00 for the new pump.

We're hoping it's nothing major, and no parts whatsoever are required, and it's fixed on the day! MOL

The P.A. and Cat Dad are wondering if they can use our cat fur as currency, as we've got that in abundance at BBHQ, especially since the P.A. brushes us everyday, and if cat fur were currency we'd be billionaires! MOL

Do join us again tomorrow for another CATS HAVE PURROBLEMS TOO, and if mew missed the previous Despurrate Dilemma, click here.

We do hope mew have an epic day, and remember to always...

  4. Great selfies and art. That is a place we visited often during lockdown and took a picnic with us. We parked by Houseman's Engine House and would walk to the Cheesewring. Less than 4 years ago but I was so much more mobile then *sigh*.
