Stone Row / Alignment

Miscellaneous

A glance at the map will show you so many stone rows in this area - but the one I mean here is the longest at 1900 metres! It runs north-south along the top of this ridge of moor. Burl quotes it being referred to in a Saxon charter as "the old way with the white stones", and suggests that there must have been over 2000 stones at one time. Blimey. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
