furry dan has it,

there is just too much to get your heed about here. good fun to try though.

all that is said is true , this place was revered ,maybe to fault by those who farmed here.

very wet and lost in the concentrics. Rain sluices down , twas spooky, dark.

for what its worth, my favourite one is the smallish boulder circle, that has , 12 stones of six men & six ladies. perfect balance and and off centre alignement , just past the last tall circle ( with the three big feather reds. weather beds), tis on the right with a smaller flooded ( rain permitting) circle to the left.

according to the upright authority of the bill boards that sought to aggregate and categorise the unmeasurable... it was circle number 3 or 4 or was it 1 , 2 5,or 6. I canna remember.

I condemned the arbitrary linear classification then hopelessly failed to understand what it really all meant on its own terms,

Truth is we impose our own patterns on the invisible and in doing so find usable meaning.
