Lanyon Quoit

A pre-historic stone monument in cornwall.

On the lane from Chun Castle towards Penzance, this is probably one of the easiest quoits to see. There isn’t anywhere to park, so after spotting it along the lane, drive slowly until you see the style and the National Trust marker. (Some people haven’t realised about the style and have climbed over barbed wire to get there.)

It’s literally a few metres from the road, but it’s a great atmosphere here with wonderful views of the countryside in all directions. I got there at sunset and took some nice photos of the sun going down between the stones.
