Adam and Eve Stones - Added to Iconic Landscapes and Ancient Sites in South West

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission not required.

Parking and TOAL was from Nash Road, 51.422019, -1.873002.

Adam and Eve Stones also known as Beckhampton Longstones are two large standing stones which are the only visible remains of Longstones Cove and Beckhampton Avenue.

Adam is the larger of the two stones and along with three others formed a four-sided cove known as Longstones Cove which was also part of the Beckhampton Avenue. Unfortunately, the other stones were destroyed in the post-medieval period by a landowner. Adam stone fell over in 1911 and was re-erected in 1912.

Adam and Eve Stones are all that is known to survive of the Beckhampton Avenue which was a major ceremonial avenue of standing stones. It's believed that this avenue was connected to Avebury Henge, but there is no evidence to support this theory.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 16/01/2022. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.
