Europe Zennor, Cornwall. England
Description and Information

Carn Galver, or Carn Galva as the local pronunciation, is a parish of Zennor, Penwith, Cornwall. The beautiful hills are dotted with Neolithic structures dating back beyond 5000 years. Along the northwestern facing cliff, many granite outcrops (locally referred to as “carns”) overlook the water. The carn itself has been named one of the four Neolithic tor enclosures in Penwith all confined into the small moorland of Boskednan Moor. Many other remnants of history stand among colourful vegetation throughout this conservation area.
