St Martin In Meneage, Kerrier, Cornwall

National grid reference: SW 72562116

A 9ft high pointed menhir standing beside the dishes of the Goonhilly communications centre. This great stump was re-erected in 1928 after being recumbent in the vicinity since antiquity. Goonhilly Downs on the Lizard peninsula in the early Bronze Age was a burial ground for a significant local population as testified by the concentration of round barrows around the highest point at the Dry Tree. It stands proud today like the last fossilised remnant from an ancient forest of giants, a dream for many generations inhabiting the treeless South West.
