|Description ||Looking west towards the highest 'barrow' (can someone confirm this?) at the seaward end of Trevelgue promontory fort. This and the eastern Bronze Age barrow may never have been excavated, as nothing is known of their contents, unlike the two slightly further north.|
|I've just confirmed that this IS a barrow. Craig Weatherhill's excellent book, 'Cornovia' (covering just about all the sites in Cornwall) has a plan of the site, with this mound clearly marked as a 'Barrow'.
Re-checking my OS map, the promontory is pincer-shaped, like a huge west-facing 'lobster claw', and the barrow sits high above a very narrow inlet at the 'claw's joint.|
