Trust acquires Trethevy Field

Trust acquires Trethevy Field

At the beginning of November the Trust were informed that the field in which Trethevy Quoit is located was for sale.  While the quoit itself was gifted to the Government in the 1930s, the field was in separate ownership and a potential buyer was keen to use it for grazing horses.  The Trust was most concerned about this as some years ago there had been many problems with the public accessing the quoit because of grazing horses. In consultation with the Government Agencies, Historic England and English Heritage, it was decided that Cornwall Heritage Trust should bid to acquire the field thus protecting this magnificent monument.  The Trust are indebted to David Attwell, the Trustee that manages the East Cornwall sites, who successfully negotiated the purchase as well as a grant from Historic England to help pay for the land.
