anyway, hope this info helps. First found reference to these stones on this website, and used it in a paper on the potential for surviving archaeology of Bidston based upon maps....thought I'd repay the favour with some info!

I've had a few top drawer archaeologists look at this and they came to the same conclusion. By the way, if you're looking for any prehistory in Bidston, that cave would be a good start. A number of stone axe heads were found in the local area, but were lost in the bombing of Liverpool museum.

I've recently been given a polished neolithic axe head found in Heswall about 30 years ago and the owner had been using it as a door stop.

Thanks for looking into this deano. I had a feeling I was never really going to get round to it!

Question is - is that field visible from the site of the observatory?

It would have been when the observatory was first built, and we don't necessarily know the size of the stones, only their position....as a caveat though, I'm just surmising and am probably incorrect; however it's clear that it's highly unlikely to be a prehistoric monument of any kind. Would have been nice though!

Its a shame there is nothing written about it. I thought Neilson might have mentioned them but he didn't. frown

Never seen that cave, nice pic !. I would still go on the theory that the stones are marking a boundary like a dwarf wall.
