Trendrine Hill

Round Barrow(s)


Visited in blazing hot sunshine in June. We approached from the west, via Zennor and Sperris Quoits and the strung out line of the Sperris Croft roundhouse settlement. On top of Trendrine Hill, surmounted by an OS trig point, there are two large round barrows. The higher of the two is a huge cairn (62ft across) constructed of smallish stones, which the trig point sits on top of.

Slightly down the slope to the SE is another large barrow, this one incorporating some natural rocks into its massive kerb. Although overgrown in midsummer, the two barrows are very prominent. We left to the SE, over Beagletodn Downs and then onto the footpath running east to Towednack (this was a steep descent and looked easier to follow going downhill than it might have been to find in the opposite direction).
