Falkner's Circle

Stone Circle


I read in Maud Cunnington's 'Introduction to the Archaeology of Wiltshire' (1949) that "Falkener's Circle [sic] formerly stood in a field called Waylen's Penning."

I know. It could have just been a man called Waylen who owned the field. But what if it's to do with Waylen = the mythological smith Wayland? and the original circle was where he penned his animals? Information to confirm / deny this is welcome...
