The stone circle on the low mound as it's seen from the road.


There are four stone circles at Glebe, but we only visited one of them, the closest to the road and the easiest to find. The others are scattered around, in adjacent fields, we should have jumped over stone dry walls and barbed wires, and we didn't have enough time to do so. I hope I'll a chance in the future.
I'm definetely sure that we came to Glebe before, but I can't remember when and I can't find trace of that visit in my records.
The stone circle is inside a circular metal fence up a low mound. There's a passage in the wall that separates the field from the R345. We walked to the southeast (135°) for 100 metres. The circle is made of 22 stones on a diameter of 14 metres. Some of them are quite tall, others just poke out of the ground. The recumbent stone is at northwest (320°), and it's 1.06 metres tall and 1.30 metres wide, flanked by two slender stones.
