Did you spot us on BBC Countryfile last night? We were thrilled that the Hurler Stone Circles were featured on the show!
Our Sites Officer, Dick Cole, was on hand to help the show explore the myths and legends which surround the site. You may have also spotted Merv Davey playing the Cornish pipes at ‘The Pipers’ standing stones.
Huge thanks go to Dick and Merv for braving a biting cold winter morning to share the story of this special place and to the BBC Countryfile team for featuring the site.
Close by on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor, this impressive line of three early Bronze Age stone circles is one of Cornwall’s most significant ceremonial prehistoric monuments. It’s such an important part of the remarkable ceremonial landscape on Bodmin Moor and we’re so pleased that it’s getting the attention it rightly deserves. What an honour!
The Hurler Stone Circles is one of 16 historic sites we care for here at Cornwall Heritage Trust. We believe that everyone should have access to Cornwall’s heritage, and that’s why these sites are all open to the public and free to enter 365 days a year.
For those who missed the Countryfile episode or would like to watch it again, it is available here on BBC iPlayer. The piece about the Hurlers is 43 minutes into the episode.
