|Description ||Minions Mound, a bronze age cairn that is situated by the car park for the Hurlers stone circle site. Easy to miss, many if not all the visitors to the car park are probably unaware just what this small mound is. The mound was damaged when the walls for the adjacent cottages were built, and half the mound was cut away, forming a 'D' shape. The cairn gave it's name to the village of Minions, which was previously called Cheewring Railway, a major junction point for the original Liskeard and Caradon railway, used to move mined ores from the area to Moorswater near Liskeard for onward despatch by barge to Looe and then to South Wales.|
