Cornish sacred hill up for auction
Brown Gelly, the hill to the south of Dozmary Pool (Cornwall, England) goes up for auction on the 27th September. On the hill are several barrows plus Iron Age settlements. The land has recently become open access land, before that access to the hill was never clear. The guide price for 240 acres of prime Bodmin Moor is £220,000.
The Moor, which has not been on the open market since 1927, has been subject to a recent tenure stewardship scheme, which finished in 2004. The land extends in all to 97.32 hectares (240.4 acres or thereabouts) and is contained within a ring fence of enclosed Moor.
