Ceramic & Glass

Written by

The restoration of this majestic stone monument to its original form and on the original site was executed as reported at that time in the West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser on 4th April 1834, with the aid of “powerful machinery”. Perhaps a steam or traction engine was brought onto the land to help reposition the uprights and balance the capstone back into place: pieces of clinker were found in several of the test pits.
