The stone circle seen from the southeast, as it appears from outside the private field.


The location where this stone circle is looks like a surreal place, far from almost everything, apart from the bungalow in the same land of the circle. The road itself is narrow and without any other traffic and it's 2.4 km long from the last junction.
I knocked at the bungalow door before entering the field and the man whom I asked the permission granted us to see the circle only after we payed 1 euro each.
Generally I don't like to leave money in such a way, I only did it two or three times in the past, but the place was worth it and he was a good man and above all he was absolutely kind and welcoming.
The stone circle is very nice. It has 10 stones still in place but I think that other 4 or 5 stones are missing. Some bumps in the soil may hide some of the missing stones.
The diameter of the arrangment is 7.40 metres and the taller stone is 2.50 metres of height and it's east-southeast (110°) of the centre of the circle.
