Mulfra Quoit

Mulfra Quoit is similar in size and construction to Chûn Quoit [available as a downloadable leaflet] but is in a more ruined state. Only three of the original four upright stones remain and the 2.9m (9.5ft) capstone has slipped off. Like Chûn it was originally contained within a mound, no trace of which remains.
To visit the cleared Mulfra Courtyard House Settlement [SW 454 350] continue on the path
down the other side of the hill, which becomes a track that leads to the extensive settlement. Nearby, at Bodrifty there are more remains of huts and a reconstructed Iron Age house (ask permission at Bodrifty farm to view).

Location

From Chysauster continue along the road westwards until it joins the Newmill-Treen (Gurnards Head) road. Turn right (north) and drive for about a mile. Where a side road turns right there is a small grassy area opposite (on the left) to park.

Access

From the parking place take the track going west and after a few hundred yards one at right angles going south. This climbs Mulfra Hill, and just over the summit there is Mulfra Quoit. Lovely views over Mounts Bay.
