GREY CROFT STONE CIRCLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Bronze Age in date and consisting of 12 stones, it was buried in 1820. The site was excavated and restored in 1949 when a cairn was also found in the centre of the circle; it covered a possible cremation with a jet or lignite ring. The monument is also visible as upstanding structures on air photographs mapped as part of the North West Coast Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment Survey. It appears to be still extant on the latest 1990 Ordnance Survey vertical photography.
