Saw the Cheesewring from Hurlers standing stones and, being in our mid sixties, doubted we could make it to the top. We did though; it wasn't as hard a climb as we had thought and so worth it. The view from the top is stunning...More

On arriving here, there is a small car park close by. Dogs are allowed on leads, due to cattle & sheep grazing. Firstly, you come across The Hurlers Stone circle, before The Cheesewring commands the Moor from its’ lofty perch in the distance. It is...More

Close to the Hurlers stone circles ( 1 mile apart from eachother) and much closer to Liskeard than to Bodmin: park your car, walk and see them both. It takes about two hours to do that on foot, which is the only way. Unless you...More
