About

Hidden in the heart of Ulster lies the Glenelly Valley and the Sperrins; a dramatic environment millions of years in the making with a thousand and one secrets waiting to be discovered. Mysterious sentinels such as the Goles Alignment add to the enchantment of the region and are integral to the landscape and story of Tyrone and the Sperrins.

The Goles Alignment/Stone Row consists of eleven individual upright stones, orientated north-south and arranged in a straight line and measuring some 16 metres in length. Dating from the early Bronze Age these stones are believed to be associated with rituals to observe the rising moon.

Interpretation available on site.

The Goles Alignment/Stone Row is situated on the B47 between Plumbridge and Draperstown.
