The Giant's Quoits

The Giant's Quoits are situated just outside the village of Rosenithon near St Keverne. However, they were not always located here; in fact up until 1967 the stack of granite had stood on the nearby cliffs of Manacle Point.

The rocks were moved when the St Keverne Stone Company expanded the quarry at Porthoustock.

The Giant's Quoits are actually a natural rock formation. Like the well known Cheesewring rocks on Bodmin Moor, the formation is the result of a single granite tor being shaped by the elements, with the softer rock eroded away completely.
