My enquiry was to ask if there are other examples of stone circles that had actually been moved in this way rather than buried or destroyed - and do they still count (here) as an ancient site.

Strichen has had a colourful life ,stones removed ,then re-arranged with the recumbent shifted to the north which would have made it the only example with that orientation .It then became a folly albeit a genuine one .Then destroyed only to rebuilt as faithfully as possible .There are probably other misfortunes I've forgotten .
