The Hurlers

The Hurlers is a group of three stone circles in Cornwall, UK. The site is half-a-mile (0.8 km) west of the village of Minions on the eastern flank of Bodmin Moor approximately four miles (6 km) north of Liskeard[1] at OS grid reference SX258714.

The circles were first noted by historian John Norden in 1584 and the first detailed description was made by William Borlase in 1754. The tradition states that they are men turned to stone for profaning the Lords Day by taking part in a hurling match; the arrangement of the stones led to the name
