Mulfra  Cornwall


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Mulfra like this:

MULFRA, a hamlet and a hill in the S W of Cornwall; 3¾ miles N N W of Penzance. The hill commands a fine distant view of Mounts bay; and is crowned by acromlech, called Mulfra Quoit, the table-stone of which has fallen from its proper position, and rests slantingly against three of the supporting stones.

The location is the small settlement marked as "Mulfra" on the modern 1:25,000 map, to the south of Mulfra Hill. Additional information about this locality is available for Madron
