Below, in the valley, flows the River Plym, and in the distance is Trowlesworthy Warren and Shaugh Moor. This stone circle is believed to be of the Bronze Age (some 4000 years ago) and was re-erected around 1909 from the stones that had fallen over the course of time. Not far from here, also on Ringmoor Down, is the Ringmoor Stone Row with cairn circle.
