Cornwall
St. Agnes

Summary : The remains of a roughly oval Iron Age "round" consisting of a bank and ditch on the north and west and a single outward facing scarp on the east and south, the latter probably the denuded remains of a bank, enclosing a total area of about 60 x 70 metres. A large mound of earth to the south of the round and several large depressions within the interior may be the result of mining operations.

At SW 71924679 on a South facing slope are the remains of a
roughly oval IA "round" consisting of a bank and ditch on the
North and West and a single outward facing scarp on the East
and South, the latter probably the denuded remains of a bank,
enclosing a total area of about 60 x 70m. A large mound of earth
to the South of the round and several large depressions within the
interior may be the result of mining operations.

Surveyed 1:2500.

Traces of an opposing curvilinear scarp slightly to the west of
the extant feature are of doubtful antiquity but may be that
identified by Warner as a second round. (3)
