Nine Maidens Stone Row

The Nine Maidens Stone Row is two miles north of St Columb Major along the A39. It is past the B3274 and on the right close to Winnards Perch. The late Neolithic row is about 262 feet long and the stones vary in height from about six down to two feet. Rows like this are thought to serve a ritualistic purpose and to be astronomically aligned and related to other stone monuments in the area.
