It's just a few rocks in a big field. At the time we were there there were a lot of school children who blocked our view. Lots of excavations ongoing

The Trevethy Quoit is an ancient burial chamber, one of a cluster of ancient monuments near St Cleer. There is a small car park adjacent to the structure. We met a very informative local gentleman here who gave us direction to The Hurlers and some...More

I've visit this quoit a lot over the years, always bringing friends and family to take a look. My only gripe is that it looks like its in someones back garden as there is a row of not very nice looking houses really close.

Interesting Burial Chamber remains up on Bodmin Moor. Free parking with short walk to the stones. Bit tricky to find, but well worth the effort. Ancient preserved pre-history!

We were very impressed with the Quoit. Amazing that it is only 50 ft away from a home. But one can feel the ancient energy. And it is also extremely easy to get to with a car par steps away.

It's easy to park right next to the quoit. You only need to stop, get out of the car , take a picture and move on. Like the other quoits in Cornwall, one has to wonder who built them , and how etc. Not as...More

Came in search of some peace and good vibes, not disappointed. The stones are simply stunning! There’s a small parking area right opposite so brilliant if you don’t want to walk too far. They are tucked behind a couple of houses (how envious am I!)...More

Its one of the great hidden gems surrounding the Liskeard area (it's not located in Bodmin as the address suggests, but overlooks the village of St Cleer, at the start of the moors, about three and a half miles north of Liskeard). However, what really...More

Magnificent ancient monument, much more impressive in the flesh. Worth a look if you are in the area, or if like us, seek it out if you love Neolithic structures.

I've loved this place ever since childhood, walking here from my grandparents' home nearby. It has that magical feeling that I often get with such reminders of ancient peoples. I've sketched it and photographed it over the years, but my last visit must have been...More
