Ramsdale Stone Circle

How many stones make a stone circle? These three standing stones on the appropriately named Standing Stones Rigg on Fylingdales Moor are known as the Ramsdale Stone Circle. Ramsdale being the name of a hamlet and a beck that eventually flows into the North Sea at Boggle Hole. It is not known if there were originally any more stones in the circle which have disappeared over time. One explanation is that they were part of a kerb around a burial cairn which itself has disappeared. All speculation. What is known is that there is plenty of evidence Bronze Age activity on Standing Stones Rigg including bowl barrows and linear earthworks.
