The southwest section of the stone circle.


This wonderful stone circle is on a private land. A lady who lives nearby granted us the permission to enter even though she wasn't the owner.
We walked for 75 metres from the cattle gate.
The stone circle has 28 stones that are very similar in shape and dimensions, all of them are around 1 metre tall. In my opinion other 22 stones are missing. In some sections of the circle every stone is very close to the next one, but in some other sections they are much more spaced, so it's easy to see where and how many stones are missing. The south stone is split in two by a holly tree.
One tree has grown up between two stones at the west end of the circle and two more trees are at southeast.
The circle has a diameter of 27 metres along the north-south axis.
The place is stunning and the sun and the sunset gives this circle a magic atmosphere.
