About Sancreed Beacon
...a beautiful stretch of natural moorland
Map reference: (OS Map 203; ref SW 415297) Three miles West of Penzance, turn North at Drift off A30
This beautiful stretch of natural moorland offers both a spectacular view across Mounts Bay and a wide variety of flora, fauna and historic remains. Above the village of Sancreed in West Penwith is Sancreed Beacon, an area of granite upland, 172m above sea level. It was probably inhabited during the Bronze Age. Remains of two burial mounds can be seen on the summit. The remains of what is believed to be a Bronze Age hut stand on its western slope.
