The Calderstones surround and park entrance
The Calderstones surround and park entrance
Looking across the stone surround that once protected the Calderstones, opposite the north east entrance to Calderstones Park. The Calderstones themselves are highly ornamented and are believed to have been part of a chambered tomb, and not actually a stone circle when they were found. The protective stone surround was built in the 19th century, but the stones were moved in 1954 to the park's Harthill Greenhouses in order to protect them from further damage or deterioration. Sue Adair's photo provides more information: SJ4087 : The Calderstones, Calderstone Park
There is an Ordnance Survey rivet bench mark on the opposite side of the surround, nearest to the park entrance - SJ4087 : Rivet bench mark on the Calderstones surround
