Three fine late Neolithic or early Bronze Age stone
circles arranged in a line, a grouping unique in England.
Hurlers Stone Circles are probably the best examples of ceremonial
circles in the south west. According to legend, they are the remains
of men petrified for playing hurling on a Sunday.
The site is managed by the Cornwall Heritage Trust.

BEFORE YOU GO
Parking: Free parking is available a 1/4 mile walk away from the site.
How to Find it: The stones can be found a short walk away
from the car park across uneven ground, heading towards the Cheesewring.
Facilities: A tea room and shop can be found in the nearby village of Minions.
Please Be Aware:
Bodmin Moor is known for its changeable weather
conditions so come prepared with suitable clothing
as the site is remote and very exposed.
Sheep and ponies are often grazing the area, so please keep dogs on leads.
PLAN A GREAT DAY OUT
A very short drive away is the extraordinary monument of Trethevy Quoit, which is another
fine example of Cornwall's Neolithic history. Further afield, visit the town
of Launceston and the imposing remains of its medieval castle.
