St. Buryan, Penwith, Cornwall.
England

National grid reference: NG 435248

The Pipers are the two tallest menhirs in Cornwall at 15ft (4.6m) for the east stone and 13ft (4.1m) the west.
Possibly two outliers of the Merry Maidens Stone Circle to the West. The name is from folklore telling of two pipers fleeing from the horrific sight of the merry maidens being turned to stone for dancing on the Sabbath, and were themselves petrified where we see them today. The placement is obviously considered and powerful enough to engender such ridicule in the Christian era.
