Cheetham Close (Stone Circle)

Beautiful day - 27/3/2003 - quick visit to two stones at the foot of the hill that I have long been interested in but had seen no comments on - see the images os ref SD717152 and SD714155.

The two are rough hewn (local stone gateposts are smooth hewn) and have the large hole at their top.

Both are to the West of the hill and stand at the side of footpaths. The first stands alone with no walling close to it, the other is part of the stone wall that separates the farmland from the moors and forms part of the entrance - at one time there must have been a gate hung from it.

Both have had metalwork inserted into them at some time using some form of hard filler. The one within the wall has had the top hole filled, partly with a small stone block and partly with filler.
