Archaeology Notes

NJ17SE 143 centred 76904 10973

A modern recumbent stone circle has been identified from oblique aerial views (RCAHMSAP 2009). Built for a Beltane festival in 2004 they are situated in a field about 243m SE of Broomhill farmstead. The circle consists of eight granite stones with the recumbent stone in the SW arc between a further two stones.

Two small mazes (labyrinths) have been cut into the turf nearby and are situated to the NE and SW of the stone circle.

Information from RCAHMS (DE), November 2009.
