Just south of the well of Tresvennack is this 3.5 metre stone, one of the stateliest on the Penwith peninsula. In 1840 the farmer discovered buried at its base a large stone slab covering a pit inside which were two Bronze Age urns, one containing cremated remains. Similar remains and burial pits including cists have been found at the base of other stones in the area.
