Chun castle and Chun Quoit

An Iron Age hillfort and bronze age stone monument

Don’t even bother going looking for these without a sturdy vehicle! If it’s muddy, you’ll need a four wheel drive for sure. But, as I mentioned in the bit about Trereen Dinas, this is a great place for a walking holiday, so that’s probably the best way to go!

We tried a few tiny roads – and I mean Tiny – the sides of our campervan enjoyed the tickling of many roadside brambles on both sides. Eventually we found a road leading to a farm where parked but there were no sign posts from there. So we picked a path to the right and walked for an hour and a half up a hill. My advice: Don’t Go This Way!!!! The path got smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller. And smaller. It had been a hot day and we were all in short skirts (apart from Chris (who was in a long one!)) and my legs got scrathced to pieces. Poor Jude was in sandals (and ended up being carried for much of the way). We waded through gorse, brambles, head-height bracken and even stingng nettles at some points. We kept thinking We’ve gone this far, it can’t be much further. Because of the steep slope to the left of us, we could never see more than a few metres in front of us and had no idea how much further it was. Eventually Chris went up ahead to the top of the hill and he still couldn’t see it. So we turned round and went back down again. I kept saying to myself, At least it’s not raining!

At the bottom we noticed a big rock painted white and a path leadng directly up over the hill. God knows why we didn’t notice this before! My advice – try that way if you’re going! It was getting dark by now and we still hadn’t found anywhere to camp overnight, and the kids were tired so we didn’t try again. So Chun Castle and Chun Quoit didn’t get a tick off out list!

3 reasons to be glad of a wet bum
June 22, 2018
Something dawned on me at Glastonbury Festival on the Thursday night last year and this is the story behind it: Rain and I were sitting in a field on our little fold-up seats, surrounded by all sorts of weird and wonderful vehicle creations waiting for Johnny Depp to appear (in actual real life, right in front of us) to introduce The Libertine, soon to be shown on the massive screen in front of the ever-growing crowd. All of a sudden, a woman amongst the group of friends sitting near us jumped up, saying something along the lines of, ‘I think someone’s spilt their drink here – I’ve got a wet bum.’…..
