Watch Croft Iron Age Settlement

Watch Croft is the highest point on the Penwith moors, rising 252 metres (827 ft) above the north coast. It is therefore not surprising that the hill has had some significance since the Bronze Age. The top of Watch Croft is marked by a cairn, whilst there is a menhir situated just downhill from top.

On the north-western slopes of Watchcroft are the remains of a couple of hut circles which date back to the Iron Age.
