Valley of Stones

The Valley of Stones is located on a minor road between Winterbourne Steepleton and Portesham within sight of the Hardy Monument. Parking is very limited but there is a small lay by just off the cross road from which the sign and stile can be seen. It is an ancient quarry the stones from which was used at nearby Portesham, Kingstone Russell, the Nine Stones, the Hell Stone and other sites. It does seem that some of the quarried stones are or were arranged in a large stone circle and several smaller ones but i am not convinced that they are 'proper' ancient monuments like some of the near by sites.
