Stripple Stones

East Cornwall

Near the hummock of Hawk's Tor are the Stripple Stones, a circular alignment that once enclosed 28 stones, although only four now remain standing. The site is west of the village of North Hill and a couple of miles north of Upton Cross; you'll definitely need an OS map to find it.
