The circle seen from the northeast.


This stone circle is in a private property. The unpaved road that runs through the property is usually locked at the main road. We found it open and drove along it for 300 metres. Then we stopped the car when we saw the circle on our left and walked south in the field for 85 metres.
The field where this circle is was free of cows when we were here, but in the other fields around there was plenty of them and they bellowed loudly for all the time.
The stone circle is made of 7 upright stones and other fallen stones arranged on a diameter of 8 metres. The recumbent stone is on the south-southwest (200°) side of the circle and is 1.15 metres tall, 1.73 metres wide and 20 centimetres thick.
On the other diameter of the circle are two vertical stones that used to mark the entrance. The one to the left is 1.10 metres tall, the other one is 1.30 metres tall, and they are 90 centimetres apart.
When we returned to our car the van of the owners came towards us and we had to back-up down to the gate, that was closed by the owners after we left.
