|Description ||One of a number of apparent broken "basins" which are throughout the fort.|
| Tim - This made me think of the curved stone that frames a 'Solstice sunset/Highest Tor on Dartmoor' alignment view from the top of Belstone Tor. See under Nine Stones (Belstone). Like yours, the one in Devon has been broken up and re-used.... but when, I wonder?|
| aye - it's very interesting; my first thought would be natural worn rocks incorporated into the structures. Good to be back around, BTW!|
| Tim - like you, I first thought I had chanced upon a discarded 'basin', perhaps once used ceremonially....until I saw just how many shaped stones there were. I will post a few I took pictures of last October for you and others to comment on. Also like you, I seem to have a bit of a backlog - too many wonderful places to visit!|
| What intrigued me about the one at Belstone Tor was how it had been placed, deliberately it seemed, to frame the view of that high tor to SW when viewed from an obvious 'seat' high above the Nine Stones cairn circle. (Not just used like the one here, as 'another brick in a wall'.)|
