Bosullow Trehyllys Courtyard House Settlement (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork)

This site used to be difficult to access and there was little to see as it was so overgrown. However, visiting it today (5 May 2010), access was easier (ie no longer was it surrounded by inpenetrable fencing and wire) but a lot of the vegetation that had previously obscured it had been cut back.

Visited the site today (5 May 2010) and found it had been considerably cleaned up with all the bracken and brambles cut away.
I'm never one for posting personal details, so all I'll say is that I've lived in West Cornwall since 1985 and have a particular interest in archaeological sites in the Penwith (Lands End) peninsula. I'm slowing tracking down and photographing around 100 sites in the area. Yes, there are probably many times that number, but I'm restricting myself at present to those for which I have some kind of description (eg in various publications) and possibly a grid reference.
