MONUMENT NO. 8812

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of a stone circle. It currently features 11 small stones of local granite, and features a possible cairn at its centre. The circle was apparently "dismantled" in the 18th century by the farmer (the farm then being known as Standing Stones Farm), who re-used the stones as gate-posts. Restoration was apparently undertaken by a Dr Quine in 1925, who set the stones in concrete. Whether he used the original stones, and whether or not he erected them in their original stone holes, is unclear. NY 01 SE 7 is almost certainly a duplication of this record.
