The Walls of Dobbe

The Walls of Dobbe, a group of three stone circles in the village of Dobwalls, Cornwall. These circles are interpreted as aspects of a lunar goddess. The first circle represents the left hand crescent moon, or virgin, and comprises of seven irregular granite stones. The second circle, represents the full moon or mother, also comprises seven irregular stones of similar height. The third circle represents the left hand crescent moon or crone and stands beside a row of trees. It consists of six stones, one of which is distinctively pointed and taller than the rest. As water courses run below the stone circles, the power of the stones are encapsulated and controlled by the cultural form of the triple circle. The centre axis of the circles extends southwards into an accurate moon observation line, whilst to the north it marks the rising of the star Spica. These stones of the triple mother-circle are finely and firmly set. They are cleft but not further tooled. At the centre of each stone circle the original carved and finished central stones have been replaced by cast iron plates.

These stones of the triple mother-circle are finely and firmly set. They are cleft but not further tooled. At the centre of each stone circle the original carved and finished central stones have been replaced by cast iron plates. Each plate is inscribed with a replica of the labyrinths that were originally carved on the central stones. These labyrinths seem to have served as dance mats in the triple centres of this ritual place.
