Stone Circle


From Camden's "Britannia" (1586):

"in a place called Biscawe Woune are nineteen stones in a circle, twelve feet from each other, and in the circle stands one much larger than the rest"

Perhaps Nicholas Crane should visit as part of his current Camden's Britannia series on BBC2?

Sigh - you're right Moth, unfortunately. I notice that channel 5 are running yet another series about Egypt, but we never get anything about the megaliths on our own doorstep.
