Turton. Stone Circles, North of Egerton
This site consists of 2 stone circles and outlying stones. The Northern circle measures 15.5 metres in diameter and consisting of 6 or 7 stones all under one metre high. Although ruined it is still recognisable. Both stone circles are 320 metres above sea level. Approximately 12 metres SW is an outlying stone. Continuing SW is the second circle which is made up of 2 concentric rings. The outer circle is 11 metres and the inner 9.6 metres in diameter. Rubble has been found between the stones with more stones in the centre leading to the assumption that it is probably a ruined ring cairn covering a burial site.
