Notes

The stone circle at Duloe is the smallest in Cornwall. The slightly oval stone circle is 11.7 metres by 10.2 metres and the tallest stone is 2.4 metres high. Seven of the eight stones which make up the circle are standing, the other is fallen and broken. All are of quartz and they vary in height from 1.0m-4.4m. A hedge bisecting the circle was removed in 1858 and circa 1861 three of the fallen stones were set up. A Bronze Age encrusted urn with horseshoe handle was found at a depth of 1.0m during a vain attempt to raise the now broken stone. It contained human bones.
