Roundwood Quay
River Fal, Cornwall

date  circa 350 BC
era  Pre-Roman  |  category  Docks/Slipway  |  reference  SW838404
Still in amazingly good condition, the granite quay on the west side of the upper reaches of the Fal estuary was constructed in pre-Roman times and is more than 2,350 years old.
Roundwood Quay was in use up until some time in the 19th century for the loading of locally-mined copper and tin into ships for export. It is now owned by the National Trust — it adjoins the grounds of Trelissick Gardens.
The other owner we know of is R.A. Daniell, who apparently owned the quay in 1814.
