MERRIVALE STONE ROW. viewed from the blocking stone of the southern row. part of a ceremonial an extensive complex combining three stone rows, cairns, a burial cist, standing stones and stone circle. the pair of rows follow the spine of a low ridge that slopes down to the southwest. the two rows are of differing lengths, the southern row is longer and more complete, with a triangular blocking stone at its head over a metre tall. it is a double avenue of some 200 stone of up to about half a metre high. it is 260 metres long oriented west-southwest and terminating at a pair of stones,. a second row, lies 25meters to the north and separated by a manmade leat. 180 metres long it runs almost parallel with its neighbour. a double row with around 160 smaller stones. a squat blocking stone exists at the eastern end. a third row exists about two thirds of the way along the southern row of about six stones leading away to the southwest, to a damaged cairn. the diagram shows some significant solar alignments. ..#insert #constructedimage #gloucestercathedral #installation #sculpture #neolithic #ancientandmodern #ancientsites #neolithic #megalithicmonuments #megaliths #ancientmonuments #monument
