|Description ||The cairn at the upper end Shovel Down row 2 avenue is a nice little monument, known as the Fourfold Circle. Obviously once a mound of diameter about 9 metres, as with most of the Shovel Down sites, most of the stones have been removed for wallbuilding. What is left are four concentric rings of stone slabs surrounding a central pit. The stones are set on edge, with their flat faces facing in towards the centre of the cairn.
