This is what the circle looks like as you enter the field at the end of the path, from the southeast of the circle. One of the outer stones and the barrow inside the circle are visible.


This stone circle is at the end of a 300 metres long grassy footpath, in a field with many cows and a lot of fresh manure.
Actually they are two concentric stone circles. The outer one has a diameter of about 30 metres and is made of 50 stones. The inner circle has an irregular circular shape and has 21 stones, but more likely they are the kerb stones of the barrow in the centre of the circle. Three more stones are outside the larger circle, one at each of the cardinal points, except for the East where there is no stone.
