St Breock Downs Standing Stone

Hob Uid: 430297
Location :
Cornwall
Cornwall
St. Breock
Grid Ref : SW9731068260
Summary : A granite standing stone on St Breock Downs, surrounded by three round barrows and a bowl barrow. It is roughly rectangular in section and measures approximately 1.7 metres by 0.3 metres at the base, and is approximately 2.3 metres high. The stone stands on a very slight mound. Large cracks in the stone are probably due to frost action. Part of the rock has split off from the top and is wedged where it has dropped into a deep crack. This is a natural break. The standing stone is thought to be of Late Neolithic/ Early Bronze Age date.
