|Description ||This site is all that remains of a long cairn. The Devil's Ring is a perforated septal stone similar to the one at the Bridestones in Cheshire. The Finger was, perhaps, a portal stone. Neither are in their original position.
Located near Mucklestone, Staffordshire and marked on OS map 127.|
|grid reference of this site is sj70733780|
|looks similar to the well known men-an-tol site in cornwall|
|visited as date; obstructed by electrice fence & ring of nettles - but|
|that won't stop me! Good stones, and can easily climb through hole.|
|just realised I visited exactly 1 year after it was posted here!|
|Maen-an-tol was also supposed to have been moved. Excavation shows that it is in the original site. I believe this also to be unmoved. If you visit the setting close to the dell- it is a compelling location.|
|There are some porthole Dolmens in N.France none in this country. I think this site was part of an algnment like the Maen -an -Tol. |
|Didn't realise anyone else had 'done' this one when I submitted mine. Lived in area most of my life and could never get a fix on if or when stones moved...was it this site or possible stone circle on other side of valley? All but one have now been broken up for walling.|
