Robert Burnard, another Dartmoor photographer, records finding all the Drizzlecombe menhirs
prostrate. It was largely thanks to his efforts that they were re-erected on July 21st and 22nd
1893 by Messrs. Turpin & Sons of Plymouth, and with the support of his fellow Dartmoor
enthusiasts, Revs. S. Baring-Gould, W.A.G. Gray and Mr. R. Hansford Worth.
Robert Burnard recorded this event in his own photograph. This Taylor photograph was taken
in November 1935. You can glimpse the photographer's shadow in the low autumn sunlight to
the left of the picture.
