Trink Hill

Round Barrow(s)


Hunt quotes O Halliwell's 'Rambles in Western Cornwall, by the Footsteps of the Giants' - the giants were always entertaining themselves with 'bob buttons' and other ball games using rocks.

"Doubtlessly the Giant's Chair on Trink Hill was frequently used during the progress of the game, nor is it improbable that the Giant's Well was also in requisition. Here, then, were at hand opportunities for rest and refreshment--the circumstances of the various traditions agreeing well with, and, in fact, demonstrating the truth of each other."
