Trevelloe Carn (Natural Rock Feature) — Fieldnotes

Visited 07.02.19

About 1 mile out of Sheffield on the B3315 towards St Buryan there is a crossroads. Trevelloe farm is on the left and Trevelloe House is on the right. Turn right down a farm track until you can see Trevelloe house on the right. There is a parallel private drive which is tarmacked. The Trevelloe Carn is visible within the grounds of Trevelloe House. It seems to have been incorporated into the garden. It does not seem that public access is encouraged so I settled for a distant view.

Tom Thumb Rock (Natural Rock Feature) — Fieldnotes

Visited 06.02.19

Head for Land's End on the A30. Around 3 miles from Land's End turn right towards the airport on the B3306. Go past the airport and through Kelynack village. Bosavern House is around 0.5 mile on the right with public parking on the left for a footpath. If you walk right towards St Just you will see Tom Thumb Rock on your left at the edge of the field. Walk to the edge of the field and follow the hedge down to the rock. It is an unexpected shape and size. Two large basins on the edge of the rock have been eroded to form seats.

Rosemorran (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Visited 07.02.19

Rosemorran Farm is on a minor road off the B3311 at the edge of Penzance. The narrow lane is enclosed by a dyke at Rosemarron Farm. The top of the standing stone can be clearly seen above the dyke at SW4752532552. The stone is on the first corner after the farm. The menhir has been hemmed in by the wall but retains its own character. Around 25 yards towards the farm there is a suspiciously stone like inclusion in the wall though it is much smaller.

Kemyel 2 (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Visited 08.02.19

If you park at Lamorna Cove the SWCP goes past Kemyal Crease. Kemyel 2 is a menhir 200 yards SE of Kemyel Menhir in an adjacent field towards the sea. It can't be seen due to the high dykes until you are in the enclosed field. It is just under 6 feet high and rounder than its neighbour. It is situated at SW457952577.

There was a gatepost at SW4570524137 which looked like a re-purposed menhir at least if not an original menhir. Is it Keymel 3?

If you park at Lamorna Cove the SWCP runs past Kemyel Crease farm. The menhir is situated at SW4569024667 around 200 yards south of Kemyel Crease farm. It is around 6 feet tall and pointed. The menhir is not marked on the OS Explorer map.

Castallack Round (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) — Fieldnotes

Visited 07.0219

I parked up in Castallack and walked up the muddy bridle path to Castallack Round at SW44852539, at a right angle in the path. The grass in the field was short however there was no sign of a hut circle. On the OS Explorer map the hut circle is just north of the round in an impossibly overgrown area.
At the northern edge of the round this a pointed menhir wedged in the dyke and a Bullaun stone a few feet away. A Bullaun stone is a stone with a deep hemispheric depression which often collects water.
