MONUMENT NO. 443917

DESCRIPTION + /

An oval enclosure lying within Great Stannon Newtake. It is defined by a 4.5 metre wide and 1.2 metre high rubble bank surrounding an internal area measuring 53.5 metres east to west by 39 metres north to south. An 8.3 metre wide entrance gap on the eastern side by a stony mound. The considerable size of the bank combined with its proximity to a number of ritual monuments within Great Stannon Newtake strongly supports that this enclosure is much more likely to have been used for ritual than domestic purposes and it has consequently been identified as a henge. Scheduled.
