How Tallon : Stone Circle
How Tallon : Stone Circle
Situated at the head of Osmaril Gill, the circle is approximately 12m in diameter and is composed of 7 sandstone blocks all of which look like they've been toppled. The two largest stones are in the north & south. There is a possible outlying stone to the west.
The area has suffered from a degree of subsidence leaving the circle on uneven ground. Some of the stones are cupmarked although there are also 'erosion cups'. One of the stones has a faintly carved cross upon it.
