Corscombe Standing Stones

The Corscombe Stones can be found just outside the village of Corscombe in Dorset. You can access them via Linhay, it's just a short walk to the stones but i prefer to park near the A356 ( Crewkerne to Dorchester road ) and walk down the valley taking in the stones on the brow of the hill first then descending to the main group of standing stones. There are 10 stones in 3 groups. It seems to be the remains of a chambered long barrow. The smallest of the bigger 3 standing stones is know locally as 'Devils Seat' or 'Grannies Armchair'. These stones are well worth a visit even though they are not officially a scheduled ancient monument.
