    Lost 'Circle' at Alderley Edge, Cheshire

    HI there -

    Can anyone help with this one? I was wandering thru some of my old journals in search of info on a certain well, when the following came to my attention in an article about the archaeo-remains near Alderley Edge:

    "Large Circle near Macclesfield Road - 'This circle, the largest at the Edge, and 30 yards in diameter, was levelled for agricultural requirements on Oct 15, 1904.'"

    It continues with brief info about the authors digging trenches to see if there was owt inside, but they found nothing. But what was this? A cairn circle, hut circle, stone circle? Does anyone have any extra info about it?

    Cheers - Paul
