ST5352 : Prehistoric Circles Somewhere

taken 3 years ago, near to Priddy, Somerset, Great Britain

Prehistoric Circles Somewhere
Prehistoric Circles Somewhere
Three prehistoric circles are marked on the map in this and the next couple of fields.
There's nothing to see from where I'm standing, but they show up quite well from above. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) Google Maps shows them very clearly.
They are thought to be roughly contemporary with Stonehenge, around 2500 BC.
What looks like a pile of stuff centre left may be part of the damage recently caused to the southern circle by contractors working for the landowner.
