Spurrell's Cross Stone Row

Stone Row / Alignment


We pass the eastern end of the row (30.8.2010) on our way from Butterdon Hill long barrow. The route here has crossed some very soggy ground and only the relatively dry weather we've had recently has stopped this area from being an outright bog.

By now it's 1 o'clock and becoming very hot. A family are sitting atop the eastern cairn, eating lunch, so we don't really get close enough to take pictures. Instead we have a look at the broken remains of the medieval Spurrell's Cross itself.

Heading north from here the path joins the old tramway that now forms part of the Two Moors Way long distance path. This takes us easily to Glasscombe Ball.
