Zennor - Cornwall


Zennor Quoit, about a mile southeast of Zennor village. Wikipedia photo

Following the coast road west from busy, tourist-thronged St. Ives, we reach the little village of Zennor, where just about everything is built of local granite, including the 12th century church, with its 600 year old "Mermaid's Chair." In the old mill house there is a collection of old mining tools, lamps and other necessities of 19th century and earlier cottage life. On the summit of the nearby moorland is the Stone Age tomb called Zennor Quoit with its leaning 18-ft long capstone. Also in the vicinity is the Iron Age village of Chysauster, dating from the first century BC, it is remarkably well-preserved.
