BACAS Geofiz survey finds possible circle

Those helpful guys at BACAS have done a survey on the suspected site of the destroyed circle up on Bathhampton down and found what looks like post holes.

Worth noting this is a mile to the west on the other side of the hill from the stones pictured.

Give em a geofizz whiz machine and they are off divining Bath and its surrounding areas ;), Stanton Drew and now Bathampton presumed stone circles, it seems that Daws dowsing (of very elliptical circles) didn't really match up with the findings. You can see the prehistoric 'lynchets' on the side of Bathhampton Downs from Little Solsbury Hill.....
