Brainport Bay Solar Alignment

Stone Row / Alignment


A full description of the site and some of its problems is in Clive Ruggles' "Astronomy in Prehistoric Britain and Ireland".

There are probably four separate features at this site but since they are close together I have kept it as one site rather than create sub-sites.

They are listed below along with grid references, National Monument Record numbers and, where appropriate, the lettering used in Ruggles shown in {}.
