I've passed this loads of times on the way to the Lizard without realising it was there!

Travel south on the A3083 toward the Lizard, and turn right at the Lizard Cyder Barn. There are only two houses in the road, before you come to the gate of the Predannack Airfield (part of RNAS Culdrose). The stone is on the left.

In Cornish 'HYR' means 'Long' and 'Ven' means stone.

The stone once marked the boundary of Predannick moor.

It has since been encompassed by a housing estate. It now sits nicely in a shrubbery in someones back garden.

Can be viewed from the roadside.
