Here is the wonderful Iron Age Chun Castle, taken by my drone on a really clear day in January.  What is amazing is how clear of bracken and gorse the site is, courtesy of the volunteers of the Penwith Landscape Partnership who were out clearing this in all weathers during December. The walls of this site used to be 5 meters in height until the stone was robbed to build Madron Workhouse. It was lived in by both people of the Iron Age and during the Medival period. The huts from the Iron age are rounded, while the huts from the medieval are squared edged. Well worth a visit before the undergrowth reclaims it again for another 40 years
