Hurlers Stone Circles

Three fine late Neolithic or early Bronze Age stone circles arranged in a line, a grouping unique in England.

Probably the best examples of ceremonial circles in the south west, they are traditionally reputed to be the remains of men petrified for playing 'hurling' on a Sunday.

Please note: Dogs on leads are welcome. Parking is quarter of a mile walk away.
