To the south of St Keverne and west of Lowland Point are the remains of settlements and field systems varying in date from the Mesolithic to early medieval times. To the west of Lowland Point is a small oval walled structure and the remains of salt making which has been dated back to the early Romano-British period. Inland and towards Trebarveth are the remains of prehistoric hut circles. Pottery and metal work found on the site point to the area being in occupation in the Bronze and Iron Ages, with other finds indicating Mesolithic activity.
It was a clear sunny March afternoon when we walked northeast along the coastal path toward Lowland Point. The pathway from Coverack is clearly marked and offers fine sea views. The site is by the coast before you reach Lowland Point.
