|Description ||How Tallon Stone Circle, Co. Durham
This elliptical stone circle is slowly being eaten up by the ground, the largest stone looks to have sunk about 2-3 ft.
2 members of the Northumberland & Durham Rock Art Project (Jeff Lynn & Ken Fairless) mark out where other stones lie.
|You been adventurin' again, Rich? :-D Good to have some pics for this site. It looks pretty isolated. I wonder if the experts can guestimate how long it'll be before all the stones sink out of site? Maybe the peat layer is thin and they'd hit bedrock before then?|
|Dave, I thinks its the bedrock causing the problem, luvly soft limestone! 1 of the stones is about 6inch away from what looks like a bottomless pit, shake holes are a plenty in the vicinity. You know what a fat bugger I am, I wouldn't fancy my chances if I stood still for more than 20mins;-)|
