staddler stones or mushrooms

Garinish Island GlengarriffUnfortunately another staddler stone along the path to the temple lost its ‘cap’ recently. Garinish Island GlengarriffWill this and the other lost upper parts of those devices (which were once used to protect the grains against mice and rats) be replaced for the next season? Have a look at the old photograph, spot the difference to the nowadays terrace!

This feature is one of the signatures of Harold Peto. In his own garden in Iford they are placed along a very steep path leading to the Edvard VII column.
