A day out at Minions & Golitha Woodland

Click on any photo in the gallery to see them larger

There are photos here of the Minions Mound, which is believed to be a bronze age cairn.
You will find it if you look carefully to the right of The Hurlers car park at Minions.   
It was damaged when the cottages next to it were built, nearly half the mound was demolished now making it a ‘D’ shape.
The cairn apparently gave the name to the village of Minions.
This is well worth a visit to see the cairn and The Hurlers with The Cheesewring in the distance which is great for walkers.
Golitha Woodland is shown in a few photos and is down a turning to the left when approaching Minions from Doublebois main road.
It is a wonderful place all year round and most spectacular in the autumn. It is signposted.
Just before Minions on the right on the moorland you will see The Long Tom standing stone known locally as The Longstone. Three different sides have been taken photos of showing old and new. It is one of the tallest standing stones in Cornwall.
