Details Replica of a Recumbent Stone Circle, now known to have been built in the mid-1990s. It was reported in 2018 by a member of the public and initially interpreted as being an authentic prehistoric monument. It is made up of ten stones with a diameter of 7.7 metres (25 feet). A full survey of the stone circle was carried out by HES in September 2018. The landowner who built it contacted HES in 2019, confirming it as a modern replica.
