OS Maps - Landranger 104 (Leeds & Bradford), Explorer 297 (Lower Wharfedale & Washburn Valley)
Also known as Hawksworth Moor Stone
Circle, this is probably not a stone
circle at all. It may be the the outer kerb of a robbed Bronze
cairn although it is most likely to be some form of enclosure. It consists
of a rough circle of stones - many set edge to edge, around 7 metres in diameter.
Many of the stones seem to have been disturbed and their original position is
now almost impossible to guess. In the centre of this chaos is a small square
setting - if the structure was a cairn then this would probably have been a cremation
if the circle is an enclosure then it may have been a cremation hearth.
