Sunset at the Hurlers Stone Circle on Bodmin Moor. There are at least 3 stone circles in this group dating back to the late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age (around 1500 BC).

The name 'the Hurlers' dates back to a much later story that the stones are men turned to stone for playing a game of hurling on the Sabbath.

Here is a link to a Seth Lakeman song about the Hurlers - it is filmed in the Minack Theatre.

Thor...great tone in this photograph....thank you for sharing the history and lure of the stones....I think we hear a different story about the stones quite often...but recently they found more artifacts the added to the story....
