THE CHEESEWRING BODMIN MOOR CORNWALL

The massive mystical Cheesewring (Cornish: Keuswask) on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, SW England, UK. This natural granite rock outcrop formation stands some 32 feet (9.75m) high on top of Stowe's Hill near the village of Minions. The larger and heavier stones are on the top and formed by the erosion of the granite outcrop. The precarious looking, top heavy balanced rock formation is visible from miles around. Its name is from its resemblance to the weights used in a cheese or cider press. Legend also says it was the result of St Tue beating the giant Uther who lived on the hill in a stone throwing contest when Christianity came to the area. Taken in July, late afternoon.
