    looks like a massive penny farthing if you tilt your head 45 degrees to the right. Intriguing.

    Indeed it does! It reminded me of an old pennyfarthing bicycle, too.

    Considering the flat, flat nature of the ground, and that the larger circle surrounds what look like building foundations, I wonder if they’re not just ditches to keep excess rainwater away from homes and barns.
