Tregeseal Holed Stones

Holed Stone


To find these from the Tregeseal stone circle, take the path from the SE corner of the circle that runs NE just skirting the S side of the southerly of the three cairns. The holed stones start a little beyond the cairn.

There are five stones. Three are in an alignment of four stones (one unholed) and these have been numbered 2,3,4 from E to W. Numbers 3 and 4 have fallen. Number 2 still stands and is the tallest of the five at 1.4m.

There are two outliers - stone number 1 lies 90m to NE of the alignment and is fairly easily spotted on the hill. Number 5 is easily seen 18m NW of 4.

1 and 5 have been repaired and are made of different stone from the other three.
