Butterdon Hill cairn circle

Cairn circle


Site added as "stone circle" due to appearance in Burl's "Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany" (Yale 1995, 2nd ed 2005) and also description on Pastscape:

"(SX 65635881) Stone Circle (NR)(1)

A low cairn within a retaining circle of stones is situated at SX
65635881, at the south end of the Butterdon stone row (SX 65 NE 17),
with which it is associated.
The circle is 11 metres in diameter, and consists of twelve stones,
all now recumbent, although when Worth wrote in 1941, one was erect
and three were leaning. Some of the stones are unusually large.
The cairn is 9 metres in diameter by 0.3 metre high, with a hollow
in the centre."
