Tregingey Round

Hillfort

Fieldnotes

If you've ever been to Newquay you've probably driven past this site. It's on the hill just above the river Gannel.

It's called a round on the map, but looks to me more like a big hairy eyebrow.

It was quite difficult to get a good view of it but by driving around in carparks and housing estates on the hill opposite the river I was able to get a few clear shots of it.
i know it was excavated a few yaers back and there is a report on it somewhere.

What I love about looking out these kind of sites is knowing that so many people know nothing about its existance. Even people living in the houses looking down to the river.

(I'll get get me anorak)
