Trippet Stone Circle

The stones in this lovely circle are taller than average for circles in Cornwall. Only eight stones remain of what were probably twenty-eight in a circle 33m in diameter. They range in height between 1.2m and 1.6m, and are quite even-spaced at 3.7m intervals around the perimeter of the circle. The name Trippet is thought to derive from the common belief that the stones are the petrified bodies of girls who were punished for dancing on the Sabbath.

This is another site on Bodmin Moor, it's just off the A30 on road towards St Breward, not far beyond the Jamaica Inn. The Trippett Stones are visible from the road.

Below are a selection of photographs from my visit there.
