The Plague Market At Merrivale

Multiple Stone Rows / Avenue


Two good sized rows of stones. Tourist guff suggests "gateways to the land of the dead etc."
Very close to the B road so convenient parking, but get there when there's not traffic (i.e. early or late), lest the ambience be poor. Alignment is east-west (ish) so maybe sundown would be good as this might afford a nice view into the sunset.

Look out for the cracked burial cist in the middle of one of the rows.
