Five Kings (Stone Row / Alignment) by Rhiannon The four remaining kings in more closely-grazed times.

From the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle:

"It is said respecting these, that the whole countryside around here belonged to five brothers who were five kings, and these stones were erected to their memory. I have been told that when the late Dr. Bruce* approached the 'Five Kings' he reverently uncovered his head."

*John Collingwood Bruce - R*man wall expert.
