Bosiliack Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Just a stone's throw from the ever-dominant ruin of Ding Dong tin mine's 19th century engine house, we found this wonderful place with the help of Ian McNeil Cooke's book 'Journey To The Stones', while en route and on foot from the Nine Maidens to Lanyon Quoit.

This such a wonderful place, its skin ripped off to reveal its internal structures to the elements. A splendid long grave, open at the top now, lined with big flat slabs faces east to greet the morning sunrise and lovely kerbstones ring the whole rubbly construction.

Definitely worth poking around in the gorse for!
