Esslie the Lesser

Stone Circle


Visited 16.6.12

Just up the road from Elsie the Greater stone circle.
Also visible from the road and also appears to have been built on a slight mound

The rain kept a’ coming down!

There are 3 stones standing and you will need to navigate a wall and barbed wire fence if you want to go in a straight line!

Although the site is overgrown it is worth a look when visiting the other two stone circles in the area.
There can’t be many places with 3 stone circles in such a small area.
Must have been an important place in ancient times?
