Stone Circle
Stone Circle
The well preserved "Hurlers" stone circles are very close to the Cheesewring, and the largest is over 40 metres in diameter. The circles date from sometime between 2,500 BC and 1,600 BC during the Bronze age. Some think the Hurlers are sited on old "Ley Lines" which cross the landscape, lining up with other ancient sites e.g. Stonehenge.
