Loudon Wood

Stone Circle


Coles says in his writings that this was a hard place to find and the locals didn't have much of a clue either! When I finally found the circle after several visits of looking in the wrong woods, walking the wrong way I ignored all given directions and asked at one of the houses before the official car park. A lady answered and she explained that it was about a 3/4 mile behind her house and gave the proper directions. With my friend John Porter we reached the site only to find a white witch, complete with strange hat and robe, doing some funny things with a divining stick. The witch said that he was looking for denergy-looking for energy coming from the rocks and had been at Auchmachar in the morning as well. He also had placed lots of white markers on the ground on places energy had been felt. Pagans also visit Louden Wood, probably because it is well hidden. I've never seen anything like this before and to be honest I'd thought he'd lost touch with reality. However some of the suggestions and plans found in the "Tims World" web site suggest that there is something about divining rocks. Maybe it isn't so far fetched after all.
