Carwynnen Quoit is one of Cornwall’s lesser known Neolithic monuments belonging to a class of portal dolmens, the largest concentration of which lie high on the moors of West Penwith, where Lanyon Quoit, Mulfra Quoit and Chun Quoit are some of the best-known examples. For the past 40 or so years the massive stones which make up the monument have lain in a collapsed heap in a field which, up until recent times, was intensively farmed. The iconic shape of the dolmen has been used on the Camborne Rugby Club and Troon Cricket Club badges. http://www.giantsquoit.org/
