The circle seen from the south-southeast. The axial stone is the one at the far left of the photo.


This beautiful stone circle is behind a house whose owner welcomed us and adviced us about the best directions to reach it. She also insisted on borrowing us two pairs of wellingtons so that we could walk in the field without getting all wet.
Behind the house there's a cattle gate and from here we walked for 60 metres in the field.
The circle is nice but the high grass hides most of it. There are 11 stones still in position, other 4 are lying on the ground. The axial stone is at west-southwest (240°), the taller stone is at the north side of the circle and is about 1.70 metres of height. The circle has a diameter of 11 metres.
