A collaboration of coast and countryside organisations on The Lizard Peninsula

Three Brothers These clear-ups are not difficult and are fun and companionable (all tools provided). Some of the sites where LAN has worked include Kynance Gate settlement (which we have rescued from a sea of gorse), the barrows near Drytree standing stone (which can now be seen for the first time in many years), the Three Brothers of Grugwith monument behind Zoar garage, and the area around the ruined St.Rumons Church. We have also helped clear the National Trust sites at Chynhalls Point and Carminowe Mill, and are currently working on the Natural England newly-cleared area of Polcoverack settlement.


Chynhalls point clear-upIf you would like to join us on any of our clear-ups you will be made very welcome. They are usually on a Tuesday afternoon, and details can be found here.
