The Hoarstones

Stone Circle


22nd Feb 2003

This circle is in a sorry state many of the stones are broken you can see from the pictures that a number have pairs of holes drilled in them.

It's definitely worth a visit though if you are in the area - a bit sad though.

We had an eaiser time getting to the stones than Kammer... Going North on the A448 we took a left (SO327995) following the sign for Hemford shortly after that we took the first left, this road ends with a bar accross it you can park here (SJ320000).

Walk just past the barrier take a left along the edge of the conifer plantation by the stream (this is pretty overgrown) follow this until you go over Railway sleeper bridge then over a style and you are in the field with the Hoarstones in front of you.

It's much nicer to approach Mitchels Fold from here, than the official car park and it's only 2.5Km, this gives you a bit more time to get acquainted with the landscape before you're among the stones.
