CHEESEWRING BODMIN MOOR CORNWALL

The massive Cheesewring on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. This natural granite formation stands some 32 feet (9.75m) high on top of Stowe's Hill near the village of Minions. Formed by the erosion of the rock outcrop of granite slabs the precarious looking top heavy formation is visible from miles around. It's name is from its resemblance to the weights used in a cheese or cider press. Legend also says it was the result of St Tue beating the giant Uther who lived on the hill in a stone throwing contest when Christianity came to the area. Taken in July, late afternoon.

      I'm pleased you like it Sigrid. The photo doesn't really do it justice. It's hard to see the scale without someone by it. An average person would probably be as tall as the top of the second slab from the bottom!
