Nigel, you asked the other day if I had any photos proving movement at Trethevy. Have a look at this and form your own opinion.

The first pic is a plan of the quoit by Barnatt in 1982. Look at stone four which has a large gap between it and the stone next to it. Now look at the second pic and see how the capstone has drawn it forward until leaning against that same stone. Stone 4 is the one on the right taken from inside the tomb. I'll leave it to you to decide.

Try seeing if Mr Barnatt himself still comes down Cornwall at all, he'd be able to confirm it's movement, as his plan is the best and he's still living and working [sheffield uni], it's worth a thought, if not e-mail your pictures to him and he may be able to tell [not for definite though] from those, his book on the cornish monuments is still the best there is even though it's years old now, and after making those plans he must know the places inside out.
