Commondale (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

I visited this site some years ago, and had great trouble finding it, mainly because the heather was so high that most of the stones were invisible until I was right upon them.

Returning yesterday was much easier- the heather's been burnt relatively recently (right into the circle!), and the stones are currently clearly visible from the path to the north.

I was a bit suspicious of the grid ref on my first visit- the circle was slightly further east than I expected. GPS confirmed this yesterday- the centre of the circle was at NZ 63778 10848 (+/- 7m); nearer to NZ638108.
