Walking through the fields in West Penwith looking for Chûn Quoit was how we spent one day of our Cornish holiday three years ago. There is something about a quoit/dolmen that intrigues me and on reaching one I feel a sense of peace and history that stretches back to (3500-2500 BC). What would this place have looked like then?
Chûn Quoit is one of the best preserved of all Neolithic quoits (also called dolmens or cromlechs) in western Cornwall. Located in open moorland near Pendeen and Morvah. Standing on a ridge, near the much later constructed Chûn Castle hill fort, it overlooks heather moorland and the open sea. The name Chûn is a corruption of the Cornish ‘Chy-an-Woone’ meaning House on the Downs.
