Piran's Round



Visited 19.4.12

My 900th field note! - that’s a lot of writing (and walking!)

Parking is available right next to the site.
The pink house mentioned in previous field notes is now beige!
The information board is interesting and has good photos.

I know this is listed as a ‘Hillfort’ but it gives a good idea of how Henges must have looked in their prime.
For some reason it reminded me of a mini version of the Roman amphitheatre in Caerleon.

The surrounding ditch is about 1m deep and the bank about 3m high.

I really liked this place and would heartily recommend a visit when in the area.
Watch the B3285 though – it’s a busy one!
