Stone Circle (Bardon Mill)

This is a circle of stones on a south facing rocky slope overlooking the southern shore of Greenlee Lough. There are at least fourteen stones in the circle, four of which are large sandstone boulders. In the south-western part of the site there is a smaller circular mound of stones and earth. Stone circles were built in the Bronze Age, and were probably used for religious ceremonies. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
