In 1909 Fred Coles mentions two stone circles and two standing stones on Broad Moss . Subsequent visits by the OS and RCAHMS failed to follow up "local information " that the stones had been dumped "in a den to the N."
About five years ago I noticed the stones and this is the first visit since . Fortunately Coles had left measurements and drawings of the stones so comparison was easy . The two standing stones are obviously the same . As most of the stones of the circles were still in the ground comparing heights is a wee bit more problematic but width and depth and a guess at potential height show very close fits to the other stones. The area is improved pasture and virtually "stone free" so the stones are quite obvious .They lie in a den NO 19627 47671 .A final irony is on the site of one of the circles is a a present day circle ,but only the result of being where a straw feeder had been left and the cattle had wandered round creating the circle.
