Northern Circle
Caption
The northern stone circle of the Hurlers. It is 34.7m (114') in diameter and currently has 15 stones, though four have fallen and there were originally 24 stones in total. Located in the scenic landscape of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, the Hurlers date from about 1500 BC. They consist of three stone circles in a row and are named for a medieval legend that they are men turned to stone for hurling (a Celtic game) on Sunday.
