Quietly but hopefully officially. I know that three stones were reerected a couple of years back, but now another four are up.

I was particularly surprised because Burl comments that the post-holes of the fallen stones were very shallow, so to put these back up must have involved new holes and not necessarily replicating the original construction. Still, the previous restoration was overseen by the County archaeologist so I assume the new four were too. It's an odd site, the stones are very mismatched in size, with no grading. It lacks the elegance of Trippet Stones or Leaze.

It's a lovely setting though. I agree with you about King Arthur's Hall, it's very special.
