Stone Circle


Antiquities.----The vestige of a druidical temple is to be seen upon a hill at the eastern extremity of the parish. This spot goes by the name of the seven grey stones; though in fact there are nine stones, surrounding a rising ground, and forming a circle of about 170 feet diameter. This place was excellently situated for astronomical observations, commands a fine opening to the east, and one of the richest and most extensive prospects in this part of the country.
From the second volume of the Statistical Account of the 1790s.
