Lanyon Quoit, is a dolmen, a portal tomb, which is located close to the village of Madron, near Penzance.

This particular dolmen has 3 supporting legs which hold up a 5.5 metre long cap stone which is reputed to weight 12 tonnes. There are also many other neolithic stones on the site which surround Lanyon Quoit.

This is a beautiful place to sit and absorb the energy and the sun rays on a beautiful day, but is remote and wind beaten even on a good day.

It is currently owned and maintained by the national trust.

The mine building in the background is Ding Dong mine and can be seen for many miles around.
