Gray Hill Stone Circle

Gray Hill is a red sandstone hill in South Wales known for its prehistoric remains which include cairns, standing stones and a stone circle.

Gray Hill Stone Circle is a small circle of stones dating to the Bronze Age, about 4000 years ago. Just outside the circle stands a monolith which aligns with another standing stone located some meters away to the north-west of the hill.

The purpose of the circle is unknown. Some people believe that the stone circle could have outlined a burial mound and the adjacent standing stone marked the entrance to the monument. But there is no evidence to support this theory.

Gray Hill Stone Circle is located on the top of Gray Hill near Chepstow in Wales.
