Duloe, Cornwall

Last month I added a three panorama tour of St Cuby’s Church, Duloe.

The church was built between the 13th and 15th centuries and the north aisle added in the 16th. It was restored in 1860 by J P St Aubyn. The Coleshull chantry chapel has some fine examples of 15th and 16th century slate tomb memorials.

While I was there I also photographed and made a panorama of the Duloe Stone Circle.

Duloe Stone Circle

The Duloe stone circle, dating to about 2000bce, is the smallest in Cornwall at between 10.2 and 11.7m in diameter, but it has the largest stones, the tallest of which stands at 2.65m. The eight stones (one has fallen) are orientated to the points of the compass. A very small ninth stone has been added in the recent past and probably should be removed. The quartz-rich stones are not local to the site and have probably been brought from Herodsfoot mine about two miles to the north west, or possibly Tregartland Tor about a mile to the south east.

I also added panoramas of the churches at St Keyne and All Saints, Herodsfoot.
