Pairs of Menhirs

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting two pairs of Menhirs in two days

The first is located just outside Drift in West Cornwall and is a great example of two Bronze Age Menhirs. Also known as The Sisters one of them is supposed to look like a lady in a cloak. IMG_4060

There are a number of pairs of Menhirs in the Penwith region but my second pair was located on Bodmin Moor at the Hurlers. This pair is called “The Pipers” (not to be confused with The Pipers near the Merry Maiden Circle in Penwith). These are aligned East-West through the two stones were positioned to mark the equinox.
