A huge thank you to the volunteers who last week joined us to continue the vital preservation work taking place at the historic West Cornwall settlement of Carn Euny.
A well-preserved ancient village, Carn Euny is located near Sancreed, Penzance. The Iron Age and Romano-British courtyard house settlement was occupied from about 500 BC to AD 400.
The work, which is part of an ongoing project at the site, included the removal of turf and the build-up of vegetation from within the ancient buildings and the laying of gravel within the internal spaces.
We are hugely grateful for the support of our volunteers. Their hard work has helped us maintain this unique Cornish heritage site for future generations!
One of twelve historic Cornish sites that Cornwall Heritage Trust protects, Carn Euny is free to enter and open to the general public throughout the year. There’s much to explore at the site including the chance to step inside its most intriguing feature – a huge stone-walled underground chamber known as a fogou.
Whether it’s conserving our sites, leading guided walks, helping at events or conducting heritage research, there are lots of ways to volunteer at Cornwall Heritage Trust. Find out more about volunteering with the Trust here https://www.cornwallheritagetrust.org/support-us/volunteer/
