Coming Up


We have been monitoring the fast moving situation with COVID-19 and have regretfully taken the decision to cancel future Clear-Up sessions for the time being. Unfortunately we have also cancelled the Easter Friday Fenton Bebibell event and Pathways to the Past on 30/31 May. We are sure that you will understand that we have to follow Government advice. However our monitoring of the West Penwith sites continues so if you are able to get out and about in the next few months do please report any damage.

Would you like to become an Ancient Sites Archaeological Monitor? Penwith’s Ancient Sites are always under pressures of various kinds. We need local people to keep an eye on the sites, and report back to their condition and any changes affecting them. Would you be prepared to ‘Adopt-a-Site’ locally, and visit it from time to time to complete a simple Monitoring form? Your commitment will greatly help in preserving our ancient sites.
