|Description ||Visited here to investigate reports that the circle had been destroyed and yup, it's gone! A sad cluster of rocks heaved out and dumped near the style still bear JCB marks and the field in which the circle stood has been stripped down to the soil and is now grassed over.
This was a listed, protected monument and I'm sure the landowner can be prosecuted if the destruction was carried out without permission.
Local folklore also tells that a number of stones were taken from the circle to build the nearby Bradup Bridge.
This pic shows the clearance pile of rocks from the field, still bearing the scars of a JCB bucket.
| Has anyone followed up on prosecuting the landowner for this philistine vandalism?|
