Stone Circle


Visited 19.5.11
From the main stone circle I climbed over the barbed wire fence and made my way across the field. Around the stones I saw what I though was another herd of young cows, unfortunately when I got closer I realised they were in fact bullocks!!
As soon as they saw me they all headed my way and I had to take refuge by standing on top of one of the stones in the circle! I was just glad that I didn't have Dafydd with me.
This was another near perfect circle made up of 15 stones and just as impressive as Lios - only smaller.
I waited for the bullocks to get bored and move on – unfortunately they didn't. I chose my spot and headed back across the field as fast as I could walk. The bullocks put on a bit of a sprint and I had to repeatedly turn and shout/wave my arms for them to back off. Eventually I got to the edge of the field and back over the fence – safety!
If when you visit the bullocks are still there may I suggest setting for a view from the fence?

Viewing from the fence sounds like a good option to me! Posted by peculier
