The Pipers

Standing Stones


Visited 12.4.10.
These beasts are MASSIVE. Must be at least 12ft high and standing about 100 metres apart in separate fields. Access is easy. Park in entrance to field on the B3315. The first (slightly larger) stone is 50 metres from the entrance into a flat but muddy field. Just before the stone is a gate to your right which gives access to the field in which the other stone stands. As I pondered these two stones a jet flew overhead - I bet these two stones could tell a tale or two?! Definitely worth stopping for a look when visiting the Merry Maidens.
