how large stones can be easily moved around for building circles
Pagan couple move prehistoric stone circle into suburban home
John and Suky Burton imported the 13 prehistoric stones from their former Weymouth mansion when they downsized to a detached house in Dorchester last weekend.
The stone circle megalith was originally erected in the grounds of Abbotts Court by Burberry fashion house founder Thomas Burberry in the early 1900s.
The Burtons bought the mansion in the 1980s and could not live without the monoliths when they downsized to Dorchester.
Neighbours watched in bewilderment as druid John and hereditary witch Suky used a crane and a huge truck to transport the 6ft stones to their new abode.
The couple - both antique dealers - aligned the stones at special points along a powerful ley line around the garden to encircle themselves with positive energy.
Suky, 60, then invited 20 witches from her coven to dedicate the stone circle during a special night-time ritual.
Mrs Burton - whose mother and grandmother were witches - said: "We had a blessing of the stones and we brought the energy back.
"You could feel the energy circling the stones. We feel they are a place between worlds. It's hard to describe the feeling you get when you are near these stones - but it is something extremely powerful.
"You can feel the energy pulsing around you, moving inside you, you feel at one with nature and get a real high."
The full history of the 13 ancient stones is unknown, however, they are reputed to have originated from Portland, Dorset.
They were purchased early last century by fashion giant Thomas Burberry - who placed them outside his Abbotts Court mansion, in Weymouth.
The couple - who teach magic and witchcraft - uncovered the stone circle shortly after they bought Abbotts Court in 1980 and planned to leave it as an historic landmark when they downsized.
But the property developer who bought the mansion threatened to dump the monoliths if they were left behind.
The couple employed a specialist removal firm - who used a crane and a fleet of trucks - to transport the 13 large stone to their new home.
