Two of the five round houses situated in Veryan Green. In the 19th century Veryan's local vicar and land owner Jeremiah Trist expanded the village's buildings. Aside from convincing his parishioners to attend church on a regular basis, he grew interested in property. He manned the building of two schools and a series of five round houses. He was inspired to build the homes after one was built in St Winnow. Two of the round house cottages, "The Beehive" and "Left Round House", were built alongside one another on an entrance road to the village. Trist installed crosses on each of the houses and they were said to deter the devil from entering the village.
