I think the ribbons you saw are" clooties " ,an ancient Celtic ritual where pieces of cloth are dipped in a holy well and then tied to the tree and a prayer is said or something is asked of the spirits such as health for child and such like. It's still practiced today especially in Scotland. Wikipedia has a thred on it, I would link it but I dont know how.

Interesting. Kind of like the Tibetan prayer flags.

Ok here you go.


I hope I did that right and cut everything away except for the pic I wanted, been awhile since I have. This picture reminds me of Pi. Think its just a coincidence? Like others I have enjoyed the read also.

Probably, because the use of that symbol for the famous number is very modern.

Sweet thread !

In the '101' photo: we can see that the ground is well-worn around the '0', and not too much around the '1' 's.

Perhaps there is some sort of ritual still practiced there, or maybe just a couple of squirrels that go there to play 'chase-the-peanut' ?

It's very sexual. My guess is that it would be involved in some kind of fertility ritual, or a ritual where you passed a baby through for good luck and good health. Kind of like a "stone baptism."

Be careful claiming these are "Ancient" sites................

Dont forget one of them was recently exposed as a bunch of stone monuments erected by a farmer years ago, then revered as some long lost culture by "Experts".

Even Stonehenge was "Rebuilt" in the 1950s...................both articles on ATS somewhere.

Awesome thread! I long to visit the UK. My roots are there. Scotland, Ireland and England.

Good point considering that the location gets the same weather all year round.
Its almost as though grass cannot grow around the '0'.

Looks cool, there are plenty of these circles just abandonded and forgotten by historic scotland and many of the megalithic stones lie face down covered in grass !

A guy I follow on youtube had done some extensive research into the stones and ley lines
I'll see if I can remember his youtube channel , he is a wee old guy who does the divining rods with the ley lines.

Me and my partner we walk the dogs together she and I enjoy going to pict and celt sites to look for cup and ring stones and triskele

I will make sure to capture some pics on our next adventure

I used to live in Pendeen, it's such a lovely area. Didn't much care for it as a child, but looking back now I'm so grateful for all the experiences that I had there that I wouldn't have had living somewhere more built up. There's so many megalithic sites in the area, as well as all the wheelhouses and of course the incredible coastline, it's an amazing area to explore. Would love to move back someday.

i agree. It is a pity that we as children do not realize that the statement "You Only Miss Something When it is Gone" is so true.

Just thought I'd add the same locations for a different angle, showing how much the tin mine stands out on the horizon from a long distance away.

Tin mine, as a little dot on the horizon, when viewed from a cove named "Maen-Du" between the towns Marazion and Perranuthnoe.

Took a walk in prisili hills earlier this year which is in west wales pembrokeshire.... same stones at the top of the hills and apparently the same stones which were used at stonehenge... fck knows how they were moved over 180 miles though. Maybe by sea and part way land but still, they are pretty heavy!

I do. It is a symbolic Pagan ritual that has to do with the physical representation of a wish or a prayer. Some sects of Paganism called it Blessing of the Tree or The Blessings of the Trees.

Thanks for the very cool pics and words. I totally dig megalithic sites even though I've never seen one in person and most likely never will as I live in Las Vegas. Ain't none of that stuff around here. This is why I watch Ancient Aliens. Even if I'm not buying what they are selling sometimes they still go around the world to sites like this. They have shown me loads of places I'd never heard of.

Photography is a bit of a hobby of mine so I'll definitely get some pictures, looking at the rough location it seems to be quite rural so I might spend a day having a look about but come night time I'll try and get some night photography done in the area and get some night sky photos, maybe I can incorporate the stone circles in with a starry sky. I know how hit and miss cornwall can be with the weather though.

Any chance you can provide a bit more of a location to these stone circles like a road name or a screen shot from google earth/maps as to where they are ?

My dad lives in Bodmin so it's a bit of a drive but I can't complain about that driving through cornwalls countryside is lovely
