As before!

• easy, and there is so much more in the landscape than the circle.

• What was your immediate reaction upon reaching the stone circle?

First time - thought it in a very "pretty" setting. Beautiful Sunday afternoon, plenty of people sitting round having quiet picnics, very calm.

Subsequent visits - more and more angry about the number of tents, beer bottles, campfires, plastic bags, dumped clothes and general rubbish. You want to protect the landscape, fine - but lighting fires 3 foot away from the circle is not my idea of protection.

• Was there anything you feel your couldn’t see as it was blocked?

Yes, because of the number of people there. But if you want a circle to yourself, this aint it - jump the wall and go to Doll Tor

• Did the monument make you feel emotionally different in a particular way? E.g. scared, small, insignificant, made you want to alter the volume of your voice?

generally, angry about the idiots who are messing up the moor - be they quarriers or hippies.
