Text on map: "This representation of this curiosity, that was sent us by our obliging and ingenious cuire respondent, has a resemblance of nature which could not be preserved in a cut, because the drawing is heightened with water colours, but it may be seen by any of our readers at St. John's Gate." Map depicts road to Kirk Oswalk, a low stone wall, several individual tress, and each stone within the enclosures including the stone called Long Meg. On page 311 of this volume, a letter is printed detailing each stone, location, size, and appearance. Long Meg is a 12 ft high piece of red sandstone standing about 240 ft from the circle of "daughter" stones. There are faint traces of spiral carvings in the face of Long Meg, in a style associated with the Bronze Age (c. 2000-900BCE). The circle is comprised of 59 stones.
