Mount Edgcumbe Barrow

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


The south-east tip of Cornwall has few ancient sites, there is mention of a quoit at Treninnow, (SX418509) which is said to have been big enough to walk under but nothing remains today.
This Barrow can be found within the confines of the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park beside the cricket pitch. (The structure to the right of the barrow in the photo is the pavillion).
I can find no record to say it has been excavated or if it has ever been dated.
