3/13 The Seven Stones
Stone circle with outliers. Originally Bronze Age but moved here and erected as a
garden feature probably in the first half of the C19. Red-brown coloured
8 irregularly-shaped upright stones make up a rough circle and there is another off
centre inside the circle and another outside close by on the west side. A short
distance to the south are 2 more recumbent stones.
Although there are now 12 stones it is thought that these made up the Bronze Age
Seven Stones Circle which once stood on nearby Mutters Moor between the Otter Valley
and Sidmouth. According to O.S. maps the exact location is SY 107 878. Several of
the stones appear to have been broken which accounts for the discrepancy in numbers.
The stones now form the centre of what is known as The Japanese Garden, the
furniture of which is not included in the listing.
