|Mrs Wild Wooder and I visited Rempstone yesterday Sunday 15th August. I can report that there doesn't seem to be an excess of rubbish trimmings from the forestry operations any more. One stone is visible by driving past it but I'm not sure whether any casual passer-by in a car would notice it. I did because I was looking for the stones. Many thanks to Texlahome for the tip on looking for the footpath to Nine Barrows, otherwise a site which is far from easy to find. The stone by the road is impressive in that although well worn at the top, the base is quite clearly as near as dammit a perfect square and must have been dressed by a skilled mason quite a few thousand years ago.
Placed my hand on the stone and felt quite humble.
The site is still very peaceful although not all the stones are obvious. There is a very interesting website with a useful plan of the stone by Phillip Dunn at http://freespace.virgin.net/philip.dunn/sites/rempstone.htm
Worth a look for further info.
Sorry, just noticed this link is already at the bottom of this string. Anyway, it's still worth looking at.
