Trethevy Quoit - Neolithic Cornwall

Neolithic Cornwall

Away from the bustle,

away from the beaches,

away from the buzz – imagine what it would be like to live in Cornwall 5000 years ago …

First, find a high hill — Neolithic Cornwall near Ruthern Valley:

Rough Tor, perfect for a picnic.  ± PL32 9QJ.

Right across the A30 is Helman Tor.  ± PL30 5DF. 

The Cheeserings and the Hurlers± PL14 5LL, are right next to each other about half an hour away.  You have to see them to believe them.

Trethevy Quoit, pictured, ± PL14 5JY, very near the Hurlers.
