Giant's Quoit

In a windswept corner of the Frying Pan Field on the Pendarves Estate in West Cornwall (TR14 9LR, SW6501437213), sits a neglected pile of stones known as Carwynnen Quoit.

With 5,000 years of history, the cromlech has some tales to tell, and even more to inspire.
 The five acre site was purchased in 2009 by The Sustainable Trust with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund and partners. Events were held to celebrate, and an art exhibition 'A Giant Leap' with free workshops was held in an empty shop in Camborne. There is a community project growing around the restoration of the monument.
