stannon3.jpg (5596 bytes)This is a huge roughly circular ring of about 42.7m (140-foot) E-W by 40.5m (133-foot) dimensions. Like its neighbour Fernacre not too far to the east, its stones are irregularly spaced. Most are small, with the tallest 1.1m (3 feet 9 inches) located at the south. Its siting between two streams but away from extensive settlements to the WSW ENE and NW suggest a ceremonial function for the circle.

Access: Turn off B3266 up track towards Stannon china clay tips. Not far from track.
