Boskednan stone circle is a partially restored prehistoric stone circle near Boskednan in Cornwall. Traditionally known as the Nine Maidens or Nine Stones of Boskednan, the name is a misnomer, because the original structure may have contained as many as 22 upright stones around its 69 metre perimeter.

Lanyon Quoit is a dolmen in Cornwall, dating from the Neolithic period (3500-2500BC). Originally the quoit stood atop four upright stone columns and was tall enough for a horse and rider to pass beneath, but it crashed to the ground during a storm in 1815. Re-erected 9 years later, it now stands only a little over a metre tall and on three remaining stone columns. Nevertheless the Lanyon Quoit looks still very impressive.
