Goonhilly Down



Although this area of the Lizard is covered in barrows there are very few other remains to be seen except for the odd menhir like Dry Tree. WARNING! Not all is as it seems...during the 2nd WW the RAF set up a base here called RAF Dry Tree. Much of the base was to do with radar and telecomunications, hence the dishes we see today. The other remains that lie across the landscape are whats left of the station, including some of the "barrows". Take a closer look and you will see that some of the humps and bumps hide modern buildings, all part of the war effort to camoflage the area. Mr Hamhead Posted by Mr Hamhead
