THE MERRY MAIDENS OR DAWNS MEN STONE CIRCLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Prehistoric stone circle with a diameter of circa 24 metres. In the 18th Century the circle consisted of 18 stones, 2 of which had fallen. Between 1862 and 1869 the 2 fallen stones were re-erected and an extra stone added in one of the two gaps to match the incorrect total of 19 published by Borlase in 1754.
