Seven Stones of Hordron Edge (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

I have just returned 2 hours ago. It is the first time that I have set out to 'intentionally' visit a stone circle site (I think I saw one when I was a child) and I have been quite blown away by the experience. I visited this site at Hordron Edge and two more circles on Barbrook Moor.

I didn't find too much difficulty, at all, finding the circle at Hordron Edge, but like most of the other people who have posted here, I did have to climb over an already cut barbed-wire fence and stumble up a short steep incline. There I followed a track for tractors and Jeeps and eventually (1/2 a mile maybe?) just off the track I saw the circle. It has been a very cloudy day, with an ever-present feeling of rain, but it stayed dry for me and quite warm and humid.

I dont know whether it was the thrill of searching and finding the site or the energy from the site and its surroundings itself (probably a bit of both), but i found myself grinning like an idiot for 10 minutes whilst I explored and wondered about the circle(sorry for babbling here!).

I can understand why everybody has described this area as very magical, my thoughts instantly drawn back to what it must have been like so many thousands of years ago. But most of all, I found myself naturally 'connected' again to my surroundings and landscape. I felt very happy and very relaxed.

Again I wondered whether I was feeling high from finding the place (plus high from the climb I just had to get here, and the 'little' brandy in my flask of coffee) or from the energy from the site itself.

Anyway, just to say that my visits to these sites will not be my last, and I hope to discover more about these places and what they signify-signified to us strange humans!

Again I apologise for any unneccessary babbling but I just wanted to say these things while I am still in the thrall of my day.
To summarise: No problems getting there (as long as you don't mind climbing over fences and going up steep hills) and well recommended to anyone who is thinking about going there!
