Stone Circle


The nearest to my home and it has been the hardest to find! The tallest stone is only around two foot high, which looks as if it has recently been re-erected. The other stones, are only around a foot in hight, which keeps them quite well hidden amongst the heather. An occurance that I've never seen before, is that some of the stones seem to be surrounded by what looks like coarse sun-bleached grass, althought the entire circle is amongst heather. One of these stones has a small hole in the top where people have left a number of coins (although they havent been forced in). There is a pile of stones to the west of the circle, which helps to locate the site from afar, if coming from the road, head towards a couple of Rowan trees that stand alone on the moor and the circle is a little further north. The moor can be quite boggy at times and watch out for a small bog by the edge of the circle. Its a truely enchanting place, especially if you stop to watch the sun go down. Posted by alirich
