Lanyon Quoit Dolmen, Penwith, Cornwall
Lanyon Quoit is an imposing dolmen that dominates the open landscape in which it sits. Found on the moorland near Madron in Penwith, it is thought to originally have been a burial chamber and would have been covered with smaller stones and earth. The structure originally had four supports and stood taller than at present. But in a massive storm in 1815 one of the stone uprights snapped and the structure was re-erected on the remaining three supports.
