|Description ||In the foreground, Merrivale Single Row 3 (see thecaptain's overview plan) at sunset on 21st September, the day before the Autumn Equinox, 2004. In the distance, in the glare of the setting sun, can be seen the two west end stones of the southern row. Two other taller stones on the south side of that southern row are also visible above centre, and to right of pic. ('Thecaptain' has a theory that these, and other taller stones in the rows, align with the menhir at certain times of the year.) Tussocks of grass surround the smaller stones. The cairn circle in the centre of the southern row would be out of sight somewhere off the right of this picture. Therefore we are looking at approximately half of the southern row, giving us an idea of its great length.
|Can't claim to say I have a theory about these larger stones Angie, just that I made some observations that these larger stones seemed to align with the menhir and various other significant points ! |
