Wet Withens

Stone Circle


A new path has been cut across the moor and passes with in 150 metres or so of the circle and the barrow.
They've basically mown a 3 metre wide section through the heather and bilberry.
At one point the path seems to end, but carry on a few metres and you'll find it again, you'll still have to keep your eyes peeled for the barrows though, then head off the path towards it through the heather.
This is by far the easiest access i've known to the area of the monuments.

Seems a bit crazy, I'll have to get up and see myself!
I love wet withens in part for the tramp across the moor to get to it! Last time I was there I went in driving rain. My joy at getting there almost made me rip my top off and let out a primeval roar.
