The Nine Stones

The Nine Stones is a 4,000 year old small stone circle situated a little too close to the A35 between Winterbourne Abbas and Kingston Russell and is almost certainly connected to the nearby Poor Lot Burial Cemetery. The stones are of various sizes one of which is almost completely buried now. It is a great pity that the A35 main road was built so close to the stones as the heavy traffic must be damaging the stones. Access is via the nearby Little Chef restaurant which means that you no longer have to risk your life crossing the very busy road.
