Found this on a map and decided to go "Indiana Jones". Took us forever to find it, but finally at sunset we came across it. Wonderful find and super for dowsing. Very peaceful and secluded. FREE

Although it is also known as the Nine Maidens, the Boskednan stone circle lies in open ground with access via trackways from Boskednan, Ding Dong Engine House, Men-an-Tol and via Carn Galver. The ground is extremely muddy so you need to be careful. The circle now comprises eleven stones, two of which are fallen. The even spacing between the surviving... More

If your in the area it is well worth a visit to see this site and arrangement of stones which is there since monolithic times and is very close to the road for viewing. It is located about .5 mile past the turn for Lamorna Cove coming from Penzance. Worth a visit.

Taken in on a little ancient site exploration. Fascinating and always gives a pause for thought. Previous directions in reviews will help you find it.

Well worth the walk. Not a difficult walk to see this ring, you can also take in the Men an Tol en route. On a good day you can see the sea on four sides which might be why the circle is there in the first place. According to tradition (obviously wrong for so many reasons) this is the bit... More

We took in this place as part of a short tour og the Ancients with our friends. Have passed this many times and as with the other curio's that Cornwall is so fortunate to posses it is always a joy to take friends who have a similar interest to go see. Make that tiny effort.

This circle is one of a set which includes Boscawen-un, The merry maidens of Buryan and Tregeseal East in this "Holy land of Stone circles". Please help the CASPN (Cornish Ancient sites protection Network) to preserve the place by following the countryside code and treating it with the respect and veneration it deserves. It is not known what happened to... More

The Nine Maidens of Boskednan are located some way south of the B3306 and are easiest to access via the unclassified road that runs due south from the B3306 to Gulval, just outside Penzance. They stand on a windswept hillside surrounded by gorse and heather. They are difficult to locate and I have to admit almost giving up trying to... More
