Two today, but both from the lovely Blickling Hall, Norfolk, England. Rebuilt on the ruins of the old Boleyn property in the 17th century and where Anne Boleyn (yes, that one) was born around 1501.

Mên-an-Tol

This site is one of the best known megalithic structures in Britain. The name Men-an-Tol means simply ‘holed stone’ and despite having been considered a significant and popular monument from a very early date, its true purpose remains a mystery.

It’s a mystery to me how anyone finds their way to these historic sites in Cornwall, as they are not particularly well sign-posted and often involve squeezing the car into a tiny lay-by, before scaling a stile or two and tramping along a muddy lane. Cornwall Tourist Board “could do better”. 

One week left to join in with Becky’s (“A life of a 40 something”) March challenge of square photographs with the theme:

  1. Squared Squares’ – think multiple squares and squares within squares
  2. Squaring the Circle’ – the perfect post will be a circle within a square
