Castle an Dinas is an Iron Age hillfort at the summit of Castle Downs near St Columb Major and is considered one of the most important hillforts in the southwest of Britain. It dates from around the 3rd to 2nd century BC and consists of three ditch and rampart concentric rings, 850 feet (260 m) above sea level. The village of St Columb is located circa 1 mile away. St Columb Major is a town and civil parish in Cornwall. Often referred to locally as St Columb, it is approximately seven miles (11 km) southwest of Wadebridge and six miles (10 km) east of Newquay. The designation Major distinguishes it from the nearby settlement and parish of St Columb Minor on the coast. The town is named after the 6th-century AD Saint Columba of Cornwall, also known as Columb.
Twice a year the town plays host to "hurling", a medieval game once common throughout Cornwall but now only played in St Columb and St Ives. It is played on Shrove Tuesday and again on the Saturday eleven days later. The game involves two teams of unlimited numbers (the 'townsmen' and the 'countrymen' of St Columb parish) who endeavour to carry a silver ball to goals set two miles (3 km) apart or across the parish boundary, making the parish, around 17.2 square miles (45 km2) in area, the de facto largest sports ground in the world!
From St Austell Proceed to Roche passing Trethowel and Carthew on the way. Drive straight through Roche, at the bottom of the hill take the first turning off the roundabout onto Edgcumbe Road (B3274). At the end of the road turn left and proceed down the old A30, under the railway bridge. Follow the road as t bends to the right and pass over the new A30 road. When climbing the hill take the right turn immediately before the turning to the Castle-An-Dinas ancient monument road. The property is located at the end of this private drive.
