The cove is a group of three stones, two standing and one laying flat, just to the west of the Southwestern circle at Stanton Drew. The sites are separated by a fence. No one knows for sure what their purpose was but they are unique in location and in composition (different then all the circle/avenue stones) and have a calming energy. They are part of the Stanton Drew complex which also include three stone circles and the remains of two avenues. This is a magical place and there is often no one there.
The photo includes Martin Ringer, author of Pictures From The Past. He was kind enough to join Sharon and I there on our last trip to the site. His book poses many intriguing concepts and is well worth checking out.
