Another folk-story is told of a nineteenth-century antiquarian who as a boy visited the island and met an old man in whose childhood people went to the stones secretly, especially at Midsummer and on May Day. ‘His parents had said that when they were children people went openly to the circle but the Ministers had forbidden all that – so now they went in secret for it would not do to neglect the stones…
And when the sun rose on Midsummer morning “Something” came to the stones walking down the great avenue heralding by the cuckoo’s call.’
