John Michell did not make mistakes with measurements. That wasn't how he worked when it comes to the alignments of menhirs in West Penwith. He went and looked at what was on the ground and used large sale OS maps and aerial photos to plot his alignments. It's all set out in The Old Stones of Land's End.


He did make mistakes ,it took me 10 minutes to highlight the problems with Men an Tol. Did you miss it ?
Others pointed out the statistical and other problems decades ago .
