God I must peek into this blogger more than I do! Anyway...

The reason parts of the Hanging Stones look much more 'new' is cos they were only uncovered for the first time at the end of the 1870s during the quarrying operations there. We were lucky that some of the workers informed local antiquarians about them - though the place did have a reputation of being the abode of the little-people, so perhaps a superstitious worker decided to halt work for fear of calamity or something!

All the best - Paul
