The circle seen from the southeast, while you approach it.


Reaching this site is an adventure!
We drove along narrow roads that wind among the trees of a forest. Then we walked up a muddy path, with water running down on it like a little stream.
The path is 360 metres long and rises 120 metres! It is very steep!
At this point, on my left handside I found this stone circle. It's on a private land. I had to jump over a double line of barbed wire, then I walked for 150 metres east among sheep and lambs who weren't very happy that a trespasser was tramping their wet land.
The circle is incomplete. There are 12 stones still standing, but 3 to 5 stones are missing. The diameter is about 12 metres, the axial stone is on the north side of the circle, on the other end there's the taller stone of the circle, about 1.90 metres in height.
