The stone circle describes a semicircle in the pasture field.


This stone circle is on a private land. It's 200 metres past the cross roads, behind a hedge and an electric fence, about 15 metres from the road.
The circle is incomplete, only 19 stones remain and they form a semicircle from east to west on a diameter of about 30 metres.
The stones that form what remains of the circle range from 30 centimetres to 1.70 metres in height.
The day we visited the site it was pouring rain and it wasn't possible to study the place more thouroughly. We'll be back someday.

UPDATE: May 27th, 2011 - As promised, we're back, after 5 years. Again, I counted 19 stones from east (80°) to west (250°) on a diameter of 40 metres. The tallest stone is at southeast (145°) and is 1.77 metres tall, 77 centimetres wide and 1.05 metres thick.
The Fógra sign lies faces up on the ground.
