This is about a christian cist grave with upright standing stones, so is probably not relevant to news, but the following mentions a standing stone found during the Water Board's excavations, which stands between Trevalga and Trevethy.....

"Earlier this year a fallen standing stone was found at Quoit, between Trevalga and Trethevy. The 4.5 tonne stone is thought to have originally stood upright and is believed to be of later prehistoric to early medieval date.
It has been shaped from a large, local greenstone with a rounded base and tapering top. All the artefacts have been left in situ and covered securely for future generations.".....
