Approaching the stone circle from the north.


Near the famous and signposted Glebe 1 stone circle there are other two stone circles, but these are less easier to reach being beyond dry stone walls and barbed wire fences.

This one has a diameter of about 32 metres along the 80°-260° axis with only 24 stones still present, covering a little more than one half of the circumference, the northern half. One of these stone, at the northeast (35°) side of the circle, has a stepped shape. Another stone further east lies flat on the ground and shows 4 hollows, like it was turned to a bullaun stone.
