    THIRTEEN STONE HILL, OSWALDTWISTLE

    Post  Guest on Wed Jan 20, 2010 1:17 am

    STONE CIRCLE SD 766 243

    "Visited the remains of this circle over the festive period. unfortunately the farmers of Lancashire decided to clear this one to. A few stumps are now sadly all that remains, there is only one stone remaining in the circle standing upright.
    This must have been an impressive circle ."(re: 'treehugger' - The Modern Antiquarian)

    Sited on the East end of Oswaldtwistle Moor. The western section of the moor is known as Whetstone Edge - an important 'moon rise' point for the Blackburn area (M. Butler, 'Full Moon Rise & Set in the Blackburn Area'). (see books).

    The place-name alone gives this site away! Sounds like it was once an impressive spot. I aint been into that neck o't' woods, but wanna fondle mi way around a few more Lancastrian sites this year as there's plenty of 'lost' sites hiding away on moors and hillsides...
