|Description ||The Big North Stone
If this was a recumbent stone circle then you would expect the smallest stone to be at the North end but at Sheldon the North stone is the biggest (and there's no sign of a recumbent). |
| That's the one! it just sounds a dull 'clack' on this side but on the other it clangs like iron.|
| It looks a lot like Maen Llia from the Brecon Beacons.|
| According to RCAHMS, this stone is another outlier and not part of the circle at all; it may be aligned with the eastern outlier. |
"A much larger stone stands just to the north of the circle, and 17.7m to the SE is a stone similar in size to those in the circle but triangular in shape. [Visited by OS (NKB) 5 March 1964.]"
