An update on the damage being done to the cairn/bank by horses/ponies and vehicles at Trethevy Quoit and all because of inconsiderate b*stards. I hope they throw the book at them. Quite appalling and a damn good case for an exclusion zone to be formed around it while it still stands. How much more warning will it take?
As most will know I have spent a great deal of time at the quoit over the past 18 months researching and it breaks my heart to see Cornwall's 'Jewel in the Crown' being abused so badly.

Well reported Roy, just had a look at your Youtube film. Yes I agree the damage is appalling. I'm assuming these are wild ponies? Unfortunately the ground has been so sodden this winter horses are creating havoc everywhere but I agree with you this should not have been allowed to happen. Hopefully the damage can be repaired when the ground dries out a bit.
