Firstly, please don't expect a huge monument when visiting. You'll see from the photos that the site is just a couple of stone pillars in a plot of land the size of a typical back garden. That said it is worth a visit if you are passing on the A38; it's about a three mile each way detour.

It's not well sign posted and the first you will know is when you see the layby that has room for 2-3 cars. So park up and hop out and see this unique free to park and free to visit piece of English history. There is a plaque there giving you the whole story.

If you allowed a whole hour including the time to take the detour you would have time to spare. It's also very close to Golitha Falls and the Hurlers so be sure to visit there too. If you set aside 4+ hours you could do the three sites comfortably

Small but worthwhile site by the side of the road on the B3254, it even has a parking bay, and yet again free!

Walled area with the stones inside, at the time we visited they were surrounded by daffodils and looked really lovely.

An information board is at the entrance explaining the site and details on the stones.

Small area next to the road to pull over and the stones are within a walled enclosure. There's information regarding them to read and there's great views over the wall. Because it's more or less a civilised and well kept area there's not much atmosphere but it's well worth a brief stop.

This stone is just off the road with a parking bay next to it. There is no charge. It is well worth stopping to look at read a bit about what it denotes.

Well kept, breath taking views. Slightly difficult stone styles to navigate on walking route but other than that easy to locate. Nice slice of Cornish history
