Overview

Explore a complex ritual and funerary site that was in use for more than 2,000 years.

Temple Wood Stone Circle’s use began some time before 3000 BC and continued into the Bronze Age, ending about 1000 BC. In that time it was used as a place for ritual ceremonies and funerary activity.

Today its most immediately visible feature is 13 standing stones. One is marked with a spiral, a motif closely paralleled in Irish passage-grave art.
