Wet Withens

Stone Circle

Wet Withens (Stone Circle) by MartinRS Wet Withens (Old English for 'the wet land where willows grew) stone circle. With an internal diameter of 30m Wet Withens is the largest embanked stone circle in Derbyshire. The stones vary in height from about 25cm to 70cm and all of them are within the 1m high embankment, making them difficult to see. The rocks in the foreground are part of the nearby cairn. The Wet Withens embankment can be seen as a dark oval of heather below the horizon.
