It is a relief that some places are still difficult to find – otherwise this fine place would be swamped with tourists. My wife and I have visited this extraordinary site many times and have always enjoyed the experience. Boscawen-un means ‘House of the Elder Tree’ and in the early Bronze age this circle of Granite stones was surrounded by an elder forest. In May the stone ring nestles in a swathe of bluebells. The stone standing West-South-West is veined quartz and is said to mark the May day sunrise at Beltane. The best way is find Boscawen-un is to tap the coordinates 50.08978°North—5.618847°West into a satellite navigation device. Otherwise, follow the A30 from Penzance – and, after passing Catchall drive 1.4 miles till you see a parking area at the left side of the road. Pass the gate and follow the path for about 500 yards and to arrive at Boscawen-un-stone circle..
