Sunday, 24th February 2008

These stones are not marked on the OS maps, so I didn't expect them to still be here. However, they are here and they're a really nice stone pair.

Both stones are granite and they are aligned roughly northnertheast-southsouthwest. The northernmost stone is 1m tall and square in plan with a flat top. The other stone is pointed, taller (not quite 1.5m) and much more natural-looking. They fit the bill for a classic male/female pairing.

The gap between the stone is 4m, which is quite large, but I don't think there was ever a stone between the two.

About Coordinates Displayed

This is an explanation of (and a bit of a disclaimer for) the coordinates I provide.

Where a GPS figure is given this is the master for all other coordinates. According to my Garmin these are quite accurate.

Where there is no GPS figure the 6 figure grid reference is master for the others. This may not be very accurate as it could have come from the OS maps and could have been read by eye. Consequently, all other cordinates are going to have inaccuracies.

The calculation of Longitude and Latitude uses an algorithm that is not 100% accurate. The long/lat figures are used as a basis for calculating the UTM & ITM coordinates. Consequently, UTM & ITM coordinates are slightly out.

UTM is a global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator - that is at the core of the GPS system.

ITM is the new coordinate system - Irish Transverse Mercator - that is more accurate and more GPS friendly than the Irish Grid Reference system. This will be used on the next generation of Irish OS maps.
