What will I see?This, a site of a now disappeared stone circle attributed to the Bronze Age, appeared on several early maps, including early OS maps. The stones were removed to grace a rockery at Bicton before Hutchinson could record them, but he interviewed two labourers in Otterton who had been employed to move them. The depiction of the stones in two of the maps suggests the stones were no longer in a circle when they were removed.
