Stone Circle


The other stone circle that people have referred to below, is the Hampton circle. Its referred to on this website as Hampton Down.

No one seems to be able to agree on its name. TMA refers to it as Hampton Hill Stone Circle on page 213, and Hampton Down on page 128. Aubrey Burl, in his 1995 book, A Guide to Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany refers to it as Hampton Down Stone Circle (pages 67 and 68). The OS map (Explorer OL15. 596865) refers to it as simply Hampton Stone Circle.

PS - Burl also doesn't include Kingston Russell in his book and his book is supposed to have all but the fake or badly ruined. Very strange.
