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.

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

NINE MAIDENS STONE CIRCLE: Bodmin Moor, Cornwall. 'The local myth about the creation of the stones suggests 9 maidens were turned into stone as punishment for dancing on a Sunday. The fiddler, a megalith some distance north, is said to be the petrified remains of the musician who played for the dancers. These petrifaction legends are often associated with stone circles, and is reflected in the folk names of some of the nearby sites, for example, The Hurlers and The Pipers.' ✫ღ⊰n

This large farmhouse dining set has a substantial table which can easily seat up to 8 people. We have included 6 'large' fiddleback chairs including 2 carvers (larger than standard size) and painted them in a mix of Annie Sloan Country Grey and Old White, producing a warm creamy stone colour. The set has been lightly distressed to give a rustic country cottage feel
