Magnetic Hill Ronague

“Turn your car engine off and marvel as a magic stone pulls the vehicle uphill. Magnetic Hill is located on the A27 between Ronague and the Round Table crossroads. The slope is marked by this large stone on the roadside verge that is said to be part of a stone circle broken up a hundred years ago by a coven of witches”.

Sorry for the poor quality of the image but it is quite difficult to make out the wording.

High up in Bishopscourt Glen is a lovely small cave with a carved stone seat. This cave is thought to have been used by bishops for the purpose of rest and meditation. Bishop Murray reputedly took refuge here from angry locals at the time of the 1825 potato (tithe) riots. Nearby is a stone called “Creg Nyn Ushag” (Rock of the Bird) which is inscribed ‘Lead me to the rock that is higher than I’, probably dating from about 1880.
