Oh come on - just admit gracefully that some of what you have been saying is a just a teensy, weensy bit wrong.

The fact that John got a few grid refs a little bit out is not an issue and it has nothing whatever to say about his methodology, no matter how much you keep trying to claim to the contrary. And by the way neither of us knows whether the few odd grid refs were John's fault, or that of his publishers.

As to the alignment from Men an Tol it IS 66.5 degrees in TOSOLE but that is a grid bearing, not a compass bearing or a true bearing. What is your bearing of 68 degrees? Is yours grid, true or magnetic? It makes a big difference.

I've dealt with all your comments about dubious grid refs in some detail. Why don't you do me the courtesy of taking some notice instead of persisting with making misleading claims.

By the way a round in Cornwall is an Iron-age enclosed farmstead. You might not know that.
