Stone Circle


We found this on our OS map marked as "Stone Circle", and had no idea what it was for about a year after! Thought it was too beautiful to be un-named! We drove up and down the A30 (we were new to map-reading at the time and didn't have a clue where we were!) and decided to pull up in a layby to have a little explore... Over a style, through a field, and down a small path, past enormous rocks that seem to be like islands in the undergrowth! We found the circle easily (although it wasn't until we were upon it that we knew we were in the right place!) It is a truly wonderful circle. Very peaceful. Perfect. When we were there (September 2001) it was a bright sunny day, and it wasn't very overgrown at all... On the way, back, we had a little clamber over the rocky outcrops, and discovered a smaller circle that could easily have been cobbled together quite recently - or does someone know differently? I will go back, I think, and explore further, now I understand maps and footpaths, and that..! goffik Posted by goffik
