Bossington Hill



This prehistoric cairn is on a steep coastal slope between Minehead and Porlock Bay, overlooking the Bristol channel. Twelve metres in diameter, and about a metre tall, if you look in the dip in the centre you'll see some of the stones it's made of. The SM info on Magic suggests the cairn was robbed of stone in antiquity for constructing field banks. But the folklore for the Whit Stones apparently suggests another explanation.
