This is Lanyons Quoit, which is located near Penzance near Cornwall in England..
It is thought to have been a burial chamber from thousands of years ago with the capstone being 7 feet off the ground and weighing 13.5 ton.
In 1815 the capstone fell due to a severe storm, Nine years later the locals raised enough money to have it repaired.
I took this about 10 years ago when I was last in Cornwall.

taken with a small handheld Fuji.
