SY5787 : Recumbent stones at Kingston Russell stone circle

taken 12 years ago, near to Littlebredy, Dorset, Great Britain

Recumbent stones at Kingston Russell stone circle
Recumbent stones at Kingston Russell stone circle
The stones at this stone circle are all recumbent (lying down) which is unusual in the south of England, so it is assumed that they have fallen since the site's construction in the late neolithic/early bronze age. The site is run by English Heritage and the lush grass in this hilltop pasture has been strimmed away from around the stones.
