|Description ||The Whirl Stones|
| This is from early C20th AD. The stone wall is an retaining bank - the land the other side (Oakley Park) runs to the top of it! The Ring and Finger are on land called The Arbour. There was a Roman Military Station here and the road connecting Oakley Park with The Arbour is dead straight, possibly indicating Roman Leominche on its way to Chesterton, Stoke.|
| There are two comments elsewhere to note:|
1. These two stones are not 'in' the wall, they lean against it so
2. The equinoctal reference in probably an accidental outcome rather than deliberate.
The stones are rather sad affairs reminiscent of gravestones moved to the churchyard boundary walls and propped against them!
Doug Pickford, I note, suspected a henge site just south of the Norton Forge. Me? I look at the site on http://www.multimap.com (aerial option) and note the fascinating 'white noise'.
