Kell Burn Alignment

Stone Row / Alignment


Marked on the 1:25000 map as 'Stones'. This four stone alignment was investigated by Thom who measured the azimuths of 129.8 degrees (or approximately south-east) and 309.8 degrees (or approximately north-west). The results were -19.7 degrees in the former case indicating a possible lunar solstice and 23.5 degrees indicating the summer solstice sunset. Thom also measured the alignment to be 309.7 feet, but apparently only one of the stones is now visible- others may have been disturbed after the B6355 was widened. Posted by Martin
