|Description ||The stones themselves are ancient, and with their lichen-covered appearance seem to have been here in this archaeology-rich countryside since time immemorial. But appearances are deceptive. These two concentric cicles of standing stones (comprising 50 massive stones in all, with one horizontal stone supported on three vertical ones at the centre of the circles) were erected here, not by neolithic ancestors of ours, but as recently as 1998 by the son of a local farmer who built it as a 50th birthday surprise for his father.|
