taken 3 years ago, near to West Looe, Cornwall, Great Britain

Rounded field, Kilminorth
Rounded field, Kilminorth
Surrounded by a wall, this curious hilltop field is roughly ovoid in shape. "There is a field in Kilminorth, not far from the house, called The Warren, surrounded by a circular stone wall about eight feet high. Its name, probably, may be a corruption of War-ring and it originally might have been an encampment" Bond, Thomas (1822): Topographical and historical sketches of the boroughs of East and West Looe ...
