About
Believed to be a burial chamber or a mausoleum from prehistoric times, this well-known Cornish quoit collapsed during a storm in 1815, breaking some stones, and was re-erected several years later.

Thousands of years of ancient folk lore, the quoit is a prominent feature of this Bronze Age landscape. The view from here is amazing.

Just over the wall from the lane is this isolated and evocative structure. Shame to find that the original had fallen over and had to be rebuilt in the early nineteenth century. Looks the part especially if the mist is swirling. Great picture though with...More

Is this site deliberately hidden? Having seen pictures of it, we drove through Madron up the road until Google told us we were at the location, but couldn't see anything. Finding a small space to park up for a minute (maybe this is part of...More

Came up here especially to see the quoit. There were bullocks sheltering underneath it and I don't do bullocks. I was chased through a field by a herd of cattle once so perhaps you can understand my reticence to get up close and personal with...More

A splendid Neolithic site. The dolmen is huge and absolutely beautiful. Even if it is in the middle of the countryside, you have to stop to go and see it. Splendid !

One of Dozens on interesting Ancient Sites in West Cornwall, but this one is easy to find and only 100 metres from the road. Many of the others need an OS Map and a compass but they are all facinating and unspoilt and free! Men...More

This is very close to the road. There is a lay-by where you can park up. Well worth a visit if you like this type of thing.

I was blessed with a beautiful sunny day, but was reminded of the season as soon as I left the car. Even so, it's true I really did love this place. It's an oddesey to get there in a way, but a really charming drive...More

Stopped as we were passing. Not much information but a nice place to take some photos and soak up the atmosphere for a few minutes. We then went on to men-an-tol.

Located just off B3312 only a few miles out from Penzance. There is maybe a 2 car shoulder parking spot. A short walk after a climb over a wall. It is evocative and photo worthy. No real signs explaining history.
