The outer defence of Tregeare Rounds

Tregeare Rounds is an Iron Age earthwork half a mile northeast of Pendoggett in the parish of St Kew. An area with a diameter of 500 ft is enclosed by two banks and ditches. As it is overlooked by higher ground to the northwest it may have been used as a cattle enclosure rather than a fortification.[3]
