The trench is now a mere depression not more than a foot deep, the pit three feet: but doubtless time has levelled them up, and there is every reason to suppose that the pit served to represent Hell (or, in the drama of the Resurrection, the Grave), and the trench allowed the performers, after being thrust down into perdition, to regain the green-room unobserved-either actually unobserved, the trench being covered, or by a polite fiction, the audience pretending not to see.

It has not one ugly building in it and, which is unusual in Cornwall, the houses are round a green. Between the lichen-crested trunks of elm and ash that grow on the green, you can see everywhere the beautiful moorland granite.
