Stoke Flat (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Just away from the main track along Froggat Edge, most people seem to pass it by as they walk their dogs.

One stone, held offerings of coins in it's upper surface, kept in place by a smaller stone.

A single rather impressive stone rises above the others marking the site from a distance. The contours of the surrounding landscape form the illusion of a circle without, when viewed from within the stone circle itself. I have noticed this phenomenon of the encircling landscape at many other ancient sites.

This circle is well worth a visit.
