I think these may have been drilled to take gunpowder, which was then set off like a firecracker. Before TV was invented, like. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Ahaa! That fits in with the story of the farmer then who tried to destroy it and his attempt to build a cow shed on the same site, hence the five pillars next door. And we think we live in exciting times....... A R Cane Posted by A R Cane

No, they're decoration, by the original builders. The hole will not be truly round, as it would be if it had been drilled recently. StoneGloves Posted by StoneGloves
