Places to Visit

Trethevy Quoit is a particularly well-preserved example of a portal dolmen, a type of monument once common in Cornwall and dating to the early or middle part of the Neolithic period, around 3500–2500 BC. 

The huge capstone here weighs about 20 tonnes, and manoeuvring it into position was a considerable feat of engineering.

This site is very close to both King Doniert’s Stone  and The Hurlers.
