Carlin Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


Coles (PSAS 37) writing of this site in the early 20th century records a conversation with the tenant farmer who stated that there was "in his father's time, several great stones - none nearly so huge as the Carlin, however - in a Circle, within which was a very low mound or cairn ... At various times ... these blocks ... had been removed, the mound of stones carried away for dykes .... "

This would add further support to this stone being the recumbent of a largely destroyed RSC.
