Reasons for Designation

The enclosure known as Treringey Round occupies a strategically important location at the head of a navigable estuary and at the end of an ancient route. Its topographic location is also unusual occupying a steep north-facing slope. It will contain important archaeological and environmental evidence relating to its construction, development, function, date, social, political, territorial and commercial significance, domestic arrangements, agricultural practices, trade and overall landscape context.

The monument includes an enclosure, situated on a steep north-facing slope on the south side of the marine estuary called 'The Gannel', to the south of Newquay. The enclosure survives as roughly-rectangular central area. It is defined by a broad stone and earth bank measuring up to 2m high with a partially buried outer ditch of up to 1.3m deep which is best preserved on the south and eastern sides. There is a second inner bank and ditch visible in several places, surviving differentially as slighter earthworks or largely buried features.

The enclosure is shown on the Tithe Apportionment Maps, and its location is thought to be significant, above a small beach overlooking the Gannel which is known to have been the terminus of an ancient route and an important landing place.
