In great, down-to-earth yorkshire style, this fascinating ancient monument has come to be known as the Grubstones. Of course the name may have quite rational semantic origins but it still seems ironic to me. Thanks a *lot* to Gyrus for the photo, and Paul Bennett for the reproduction of the plan.

From this plan of the circle, you can see the grouse butt which has been built then partially torn down which imposes into the circle itself. Those stones are in the foreground of the photo. The circle stones can be seen immediately behind them.

Hopefully some extracts from Gyrus's new book on the ancient sites in West Yorkshire will appear on these pages soon......
