Nine Maidens Stone Row, St. Columb Major.

The finest stone row in Cornwall.

SW 93636754 - 93696763

Wade bridge deliuereth you into waste ground, where 9 long and great stones called The sisters stand in a ranke together, and seem to have been so pitched, for continuing the memory of somewhat, whose notice is yet enuied vs by time.

Richard Carew 1605 (Survey of Cornwall)

 

Here are some pictures I took of the Maidens, not far from where I live. To get there follow the road from St. Columb Major to Wadebridge. After leaving St. Columb Bypass at Winnards Perch Roundabout you travel about a mile further and you will see a layby on the right. There is plenty of room to park in the layby. Once parked you will see the stile that gets you into the fields and you will see the Stones on the other side of the field. There is full public access if you walk in a straight line to the stones.There are 8 stones standing and one fallen. There is also one stone that is not part of the row that was positioned during field clearing.

Oh.... and watch out for cattle!
