Despite the warning of not to try and find this site in summer because of the all-consuming bracken, yesterday, ably assisted by Megadread, I attempted for the second time within a month to find Strawberry Lea.
I am indebted to Megadread for helping me as without his excellent assistance and fabulous company I know I would have had to wait until winter to see this site.
Despite that it was still amazingly hard to find. I'm sure we came within a metre or so of the largest stone several times, but the bracken is such a spoiler that even at that range it was nigh on impossible to find. But through sheer determination and stubbornness, find it we did!
If you do want to visit this site, then I would say go now as we did clear back the bracken to reveal its complete layout. While there I took down the GPS information while standing roughly in the centre of the circle and I got the readings of:
Strawberry Lea is an arc of four stones varying in height from 1m to 30cm. There may be the ruins of a cist in the centre.
If this is the remains of a ring cairn, it's position seems a bit odd, being at the bottom of the slopes Wimble Holme Hill. In J Barnatt's barrow corpus he suggests the site may be similar to that of Moscar Moor and that both were originally stone circles and later had their interiors filled.
(Although Barnatt doesn't mention Crook Hill in his books, this too may be a similar site)
A tricky one to spot, even though it's close to the path... probably no chance of finding it in the summer, when the bracken is high.
