A view looking to the south.
Five large slabs support an immense leaning Capstone 5.5m x 3m x 0.4m thick of 9.4 tonne. The Capstone has slipped due to the fracture and collapse of the rear supporting slab.

Location - West Cornwall - Lands End Penninsula / West Penwith
Park - small layby on the B3306 - 1km passed Zennor on the way to St Ives.
Walk back to a track opposite 2 large houses.
A path off the track ( to the left ), climbs to a ruined mine building , then a path to the right heads towards the Quoit.
Another Quoit - 'Sperris Quoit' is off the path to the left at SW 4640 3816.
Little remains - one upright and some fallen / broken stones.
