Hurlers Stone Circles

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.

Dartmoor is famous for its ancient clapper bridges. A clapper bridge is basically a large flat stone laid across a stream. It's about as basic as a bridge can get! This one is at Teignhead.

The Hurlers Bodmin Moor Cornwall. A close grouping of three Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age stone circles. Stone circles are extremely rare in England, & a grouping of three such regular circles is unique. A local legend identifies The Hurlers as men who were turned to stone for playing the ancient game of hurling on a Sunday but they obviously pre-date Christianity by a couple thousand years
