Hoar Stone, a prehistoric burial chamber in its enclosure
The Hoar Stone is the shattered remains of a Neolithic chambered tomb consisting of three standing stones, (the largest known as 'the Old Soldier' is nearly 3 metres high) which form an arc facing eastwards and with 3 or 4 broken slabs lying at its feet, some possibly parts of a capstone. All remains of its mound have disappeared since the 19th century.
