SPINSTERS ROCK

DESCRIPTION + /

Chambered tomb restored in 1862. No evidence to confirm or deny the existence of an original mound survives. The remains of the chamber consist of three granite orthostats 6 to 9 1/2 feet high which support a large capstone 14 1/2 feet long by 10 feet wide. No trace of any mound survives. It collapsed in 1862 but was re-erected; no finds were recorded. It is associated with the nearby stones thought to have been circles and alignments (SX 69 SE 25).
