Mitchell's Fold

Stone Circle


Visited 20th July 2002: Having approached from the Chirbury direction we headed towards Mitchell's Fold from the north west. There's a footpath onto the common that follows a farmer's track from this direction. In our ignorance we drove up this track to the edge of the common without realising that we would land up almost right next to the circle.

I wouldn't drive this route again, armed with the knowledge that once you've started it you can't easily park up or turn around until you're there. Also anything less than a 4x4 would have trouble with it, and it's embarrassing enough having a 4x4 without parking it next to a stone circle like some sort of klutz. Next time I think I'll try approaching from another direction on foot!

Mitchell's Fold is a very calm circle, and the views are spectacular. While we were there it threatened to rain really hard, and we had the pleasure of watching an enormous rain storm gentle roll towards us from Wales.
