WINTERBOURNE BASSETT STONE CIRCLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Possible remains of Neolithic double stone circle, drawn and described by Stukeley, 1743. Later Hoare, 1821, cited the circle in the current position which was adopted by Ordnance Survey. A.C Smith 1884, found no trace of the circle and only 3 or 4 stones. Geophyiscal survey by the AML was undertaken in 1998, which failed to confirm the presence of a stone circle and suggested a natural scattering of stones. The subsequent report throws doubt on the current location and suggests it probably lies across the road to the south of the scheduled area.
