Carn Llechart (Cairn circle) — Fieldnotes

I have read your fieldnotes regarding Carn Llechart. I love to visit this site and do so regularly, since being shown it by some local people some time ago. The alter stone, or flat stone from the top of central chamber now lies about 100 yards away from stone circle. Unfortunately, this was apparently removed by the gas board a few years ago. If you look in the farm field to the south west of circle, you will see another stone circle with much larger stones. This was constructed by the gas board to stop the farmers cows from rubbing against the machinery that was stored there. This was going to be the use for the large flat stone. This circle is often mistaken for the original stone circle by many people. I have actually been toying with the idea of setting up a project to return the stone to it's rightful place. Another interesting thing is that the lady who took me there remembers going to the circle as a child and the centre chamber had a sulphur spring underneath. She recalls the strong smell of sulphur that used to be all those years ago.
