A new website has been created for the ‘Save Penwith Moor’ group, who have been fighting against unneccessary fencing, cattle grids and the grazing of long horn cattle who could do harm to the prehistoric stones on the moor. We highlighted just recently the loose stone at Tregeseal stone circle that has been caused by cattle ‘rubbing’ against the stone.

I have been informed by Natural England that Higher Level Stewardship agreements have now been negotiated for Trevean/Watch Croft and Lanyon Farm and will take effect from 1st May 2011. It is as yet unclear whether this will mean that cattle and/or ponies will be grazing around the iconic Men-an-Tol holed stone or Lanyon Quoit – both popular locations for visitors and locals – and not all areas have yet been fully stock proofed. Perhaps there may be a herdsman in attendance? As soon as more information is available it will be posted on this web site.
