(NX 5097 5821) Stone Circle (NR)

OS 6" map (1957)

This stone circle consists of 28 close-set low boulders placed with their broad faces on the line of the circumference. It measures 50' in diameter and the centre is occupied by a granite boulder nearly 6' high. A gap of 8'7" between two boulders on the W side suggests one stone has been removed, otherwise the circle is complete. A number of stones, probably field clearance, lie in a heap at the base of the central stone.
