Hurlers Stone Circles
Description
Part of the central circle of the Hurlers. It has an elliptical shape and is the largest of the three circles, with 14 stones measuring 41.8m x 40.5m (137x133') along its major and minor axis. 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.
