Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    This early Bronze Age stone circle is in a beautiful and atmospheric setting. As soon as you walk through the trees, the magic hits you. Legend has it that the circle depicts nine ladies turned to stone as a penalty for dancing on Sunday. There is also a 'fiddler stone' outside the main circle. The fiddler was also supposedly turned to stone for providing the music! If you are in the area on summer solstice, there is always fantastic party at the stone circle.

    I can imagine this place (among others) being a hot spot on solstices and midsummer nights etc. It can get pretty busy here so be prepared for guests in your photos.
