Notes: The Brisworthy circle underwent major reconstruction carried out by Breton and the Barrow Committee in 1909. At the time only 4 stones remained standing whilst another 21 were lying roughly in place. Some 15 stones out of 40 are missing, no doubt robbed for nearby enclosures and walls. A low rubble bank surrounds the circle which can be seen on LIDAR data. This is discussed in detail in the article 'Dartmoor Site: Brisworthy Stone Circle' linked above in this listing.
