(See also Casterton)

Casterton Stone Circle by Andy BurnhamCasterton stone circle, set in an irregular earth bank, dates from the neolithic/bronze age, approximately BC2000-600. Making up the 62 foot in diameter circle are 19 stones. The tallest stone is 19.5 inches high. A circular feature in the bank may be a cairn. It is thought that some 1828 discoveries, among which were a bronze spearhead, flint arrowhead, and drinking vessel, came from this circle.

Casterton stone circle is located northeast of the village of Casterton.
