St Petrock's Church
This handsome church is the biggest in Cornwall, 151 feet long and 65 feet wide, chiefly 15th Century, but much restored. The oldest part is in the tower, where the lower walls are Norman and seven feet thick; the 15th-century top gives it a height of 94 feet. the south porch has a fine fan-vaulted roof supporting a two-storeyed room; near it lie some ancient coffin stones.
Three Wishes Faerie Festival
One of Europe's most infamous and exciting Faerie Festivals, Three Wishes does not disappoint in the Realms of Enchantment. It was my first (of hopefully many) Three Wishes Faerie Fests. A gathering place for the faery clans to meet with the mortal humans in heartland of the historic faerie tromping grounds of history ... in Bodmin Moor, on the shores of Colliford Lake (where the Lady of the Lake presented King Arthur with Excalibur) right in the magical lands of Cornwall. Just taking an adventure in Cornwall is mystical enough ... but adding a visit to Three Wishes definitely added to the charm of the exciting quest. A three day festival for kids, families, and adults with an assortment of fun. A whole different world than the infamous American Faerieworlds you'll find many of the same mystical folks and kindred wandering around. Set in the heart of Midsummer, a portal is opened into the realms of the fae where those curious can come out to play with the good neighbours and see the "little people" close-up. Why Three Wishes? According to the web site, Karen Kay - the founder and creator of this magical event, was out in her garden hanging out laundry to dry when she noticed a single dandelion seed head standing strong and tall amongst a recently cut lawn - and as she watched it, three of the little seed heads appearing like faeries flew up into the blue sky ... and thence, Three Wishes was born. This annual three day festival in the heart of Cornwall has been growing by leaps and bounds sounding the horn for fae from all corners of the world to gather each year around the Summer Solstice. Concerts, artists, fashion shows, workshops, art exhibitions, forest walks, games, exploration areas, food, drink, festivities, friendship, kid parades, drumming, meditation, yoga, late night parties, wishing wells, clottie trees, and frolick abound. Sunday ended with a early morning greeting of the sun with a Druidic rite to welcome in the sun. What a mesmerizing time!
A group of three Stone circles in the field,
Thoose are dating about 1500 BC.
And there are two standing stines called Pipers,
have legends of men turned to stone for plying on Sunday.
And there is strange stone formation called the Cheesewring,
It is the remains of a carin where large thick oval slabs balance precaroiusly.
