    Re: What place is this?

    Might we be in North Cornwall?

      No, not North Cornwall, Ivy.

        To me it looks like an exhibition which can be found at a church wall, when they show all the old plates they found during a restauration. Is that here also the case?

          That's what I thought, Ralf. I suggested north Cornwall because that wall seems to be of slate or shale. But there are so many places that fit the two criteria of rock and Celtic inscriptions!

            Yes Ralf, you are certainly onto the right idea. These are situated in the grounds of a church.

            There is a very strong Celtic history connected to this particular site, Ivy. The churchyard used to be the site of a Celtic monastery.

              I was searching a while, but obviously i am running out of fitting keywords.
              I have no idea what else to look for.

                A slightly wider view for you. Hopefully this will help a little.

                  And an aerial view that probably gives a little bit too much away.

                    Just for the avoidance of doubt Steve, can we confirm that we're in England (or at least one of the ancient kingdoms that make up the current boundaries of the country?).
                    Cheers,

                    Mark.

                      No, we are not in England with this one, Mark. A current map showing the boundaries of England will not include this place.

                        If not England, maybe Ireland then?

                            Congratulations ombugge. I was scaning the Hebrides up north when you found the right island.

                              Spot on the pair of you, Maughold Church on the Isle of Man is the correct location.

                              The church yard contains over 40 crosses, many dating back to the 6th century.

                              Many of the 44 crosses at Kirk Maughold parish church are Celtic and some reveal the names of the priests and bishops from the former monastery.

                              You’ll also find some Norse crosses which show scenes from the story of Sigurd the Dragon Slayer. The integration between the Vikings and Celts in the Isle of Man is also depicted by stone memorials which have been carved with runic inscriptions recording both Scandinavian and native Gaelic names.

                              When it comes to the sovereignty of the island, the Isle of Man boasts quiet a complicated and interesting history. To much for me to put here, but the wiki page is well worth reading. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Man

                              So it's now back to either Oistein or Ombugge. I wonder where we will end up with the next puzzle?

                                Well done, both of you. I'd moved out of England and was thinking Wales, Scotland and Ireland/Eire. But the Isle of Man never crossed my mind, too many other islands to get lost in!
