NINE MAIDENS STONE CIRCLE: Bodmin Moor, Cornwall. 'The local myth about the creation of the stones suggests 9 maidens were turned into stone as punishment for dancing on a Sunday. The fiddler, a megalith some distance north, is said to be the petrified remains of the musician who played for the dancers. These petrifaction legends are often associated with stone circles, and is reflected in the folk names of some of the nearby sites, for example, The Hurlers and The Pipers.'     ✫ღ⊰n
