The remains of a Stone Circle, the ancient significance of the Mên-an-Tol (Cornish for ‘Stone of the Hole’ ) is unknown, although there are theories dating back to the ritual and ceremonial practices of the late Neolithic / early bronze age.

Click here for an easy to follow walking tour map that guides you to the Mên-an-Tol and Lanyon Quoit in one circular walk whilst taking in other astonishing ancient landmarks along the way.

If you would like to explore our ancient landscape with a guided tour and learn how our local monuments and stone formations relate to the night sky, join Carolyn at Archaeoastronomy Cornwall for one of her walking tours.
