Lesingey Round: textured digital surface model3D Model
Lesingey Round is a hillfort near Penzance in Cornwall, and likely dates to the Iron Age. The monument consists of a roughly circular enclosure surrounded by ramparts with a ditch on the outside. From the partially buried ditch, the ramparts stand over 4.5m high in places. In other areas the ramparts have been damaged. The site sits atop a prominent hill with panoramic views, and is covered by a ‘crown’ of trees that cover the site. In this model the trees have been digitally removed to allow for a different understanding of the site.
This 3D survey was undertaken by the Curatorial Research Centre on behalf of Penwith Landscape Partnership (PLP).
The site is owned and maintained by the Cornish Ancient Sites Protection Network (CASPN).
