Harkerside Moor Circle

Stone Circle


The OS calls this a Hut Circle, I'm going to stick my neck out and call it a stone circle possibly a cairn circle (oh no I'm introducing seeds of doubt!).
No! stone circle it is. Its a neat little circle 18m X 18m with six irregulary place stones, the largest being 1.5m tall. The largest stone has some lovely fossils on its surface. The stones are the local stone.
It has an embankment and no obvious entrance. It resembles many of the other dales circles. It is neat, small and intimate.
