Standing Stones - The Merry Maidens
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cornwall is justly noted for its prehistoric stone circles, megalithic tombs and curious rock formations, many of which have given rise to both charming and gruesome legends. The

Merry Maidens of Boleigh, Nr. Lands End, a group of 19 stones in a large circle were most probably originally used for some long forgotten religious rite but folklore tells a different tale. ...

Once, nineteen pretty maidens on their way to Sunday vespers were distracted by the playing of The Pipers, now seen as two tall standing stones a quarter mile distant, and strayed into the field, full of high spirits to laugh and dance to their music. A mighty thunderbolt transfixed both pipers and maidens to the spot where they now forever stand, turned to stone for the sin of dancing on The Sabbath Day.
