Morvah

Morvah Church

Solid granite buildings huddled on the northern Penwith cliffs, Morvah has a 14th century church, a sizeable Wesleyan chapel and an art gallery. Just outside, though, are the remarkable and atmospheric remains of an Iron Age hill fort. The two circular walls of Chun Castle (chy-wuen – house on the downs) can still be made out and, nearby, Chun Quoit is an excellent example of a Neolithic chambered barrow topped with an impressive capstone.

Just off the road that links Morvah to Madron, is Men-an-Tol, a Bronze Age circular holed stone, flanked by two upright stones and long believed to have curative powers for those who crawl through. Further on is the Neolithic table-like Lanyon Quoit.
