About Chun Quoit

This is the smallest of the areas famous cromlech's, it is also the only one never to have been dislodged. It stands close to Chun Castle, an exceptionally fine Iron-Age fort of a later date, overlooking rich moorland within sound of the turbulence of the sea.

Chun is believed to be a closed chamber, its Mushroom dome measuring 11ft by 19 ft is somewhat smaller than Lanyon Quoit, it also differs in that it is supported by four sizeable slabs. The mound is thought to possess an entrance passage to the south-east within the mound area.

The site was examined in the latter half of the 19th-century, but there were no sensational revelations.

Chun Quiot sits in a singularly dramatic site surrounded by scattered stones on heather-clad moorland, the climb to visit this magnificent monument from a long, long lost world of around 4,000 to 5,000 years ago, is well worth it for the sheer enigmatic atmosphere of the place
