Around the base of the main huge granite boulders making the summit of Roughtor are many random smaller stones. There is no pattern, just hundreds of assorted and irregular slabs strewn around the place.

A few are standing, maybe manoeuvred in a long ago history to point up at a significant object in the night sky. I was lucky to spot the contrail of a jet drifting in the daytime sky and crossing with the clouds to form an ‘x’ shape, marking and linking the modern world with the long past.
