|Description ||The view across Hurston Ridge towards Fernworthy Forest, with Kes Tor rock on right horizon. The rows of stones forming the long avenue can be seen running down the slope from the tallest stone at left to the rounded blocking stone at right, across the middle of the picture. The rounded stone in centre, closer to camera, is nothing to do with the rows. I may have been on the Two Moors Way footpath here.|
|Sorry about this, but the tallest stone to the left is actually WELL out of the picture! (It IS quite a long row). This is the bottom half of the row, and the lumpy stone nearest the camera is actually part of an ancient prehistoric wall, or reave, a later addition, that cut across the row, at right-angles. Why the ancient people chose to deface such a lovely row in this way seems odd, unless there were so many ceremonial monuments on that hill, and it was just a case of having to put it through either one, or the other?|
