Worth stopping for 5 minutes if you're on the way to Minions for the famous road sign. Space for a couple of cars to park although be careful pulling out as visibility isn't great and the road is quite fast. The stones are located in...More

We stopped for a few minutes as it was raining heavily. On a sunny day you can park in the lay-by along side. You will probably only want to stop for a short time , take a picture and move on, but it's well worth...More

Small area next to the road to pull over and the stones are within a walled enclosure. There's information regarding them to read and there's great views over the wall. Because it's more or less a civilised and well kept area there's not much atmosphere...More

This stone is just off the road with a parking bay next to it. There is no charge. It is well worth stopping to look at read a bit about what it denotes.

Well kept, breath taking views. Slightly difficult stone styles to navigate on walking route but other than that easy to locate. Nice slice of Cornish history
