I now have an update Moss...

The quoit was placed on the HAR register prior to the Trusts acquisition which was last November, so only breaking news because the list has just been published.

The hope is that it will be removed from the list in the near future as the Cornwall Heritage Trust have not been slow in determining the degree of risk. With regard to my concerns with the stability of the monument which were noted (I pointed out the huge reduction in the banking to the base of the monument over the years by the plough and stock and measured movement in the stones) it was discussed with EH in the spring and they have a very comprehensive monitoring system in place using modern technology to monitor any movement in the upright and leaning stones. Only time will tell but at the moment there are no plans for any intervention at this time.
Fingers crossed it stays that way!

That is good news Roy, it is now under the protection of Cornwall Heritage Trust, and the field itself will never be so vandalised as it was then. We have been two or three times and of course with you and Chief, and the stones have always seemed rather perilous on that little mound.
