A lovely place to visit. The walk to the actually stones is just lovely. A little quiet hedge covered lane way with fairy doors and other little things left along the hedgerows. The stones themselves.... more »
Finding this place was a little bit awkward as it is set in the middle of a field. The pathway that takes you to the stones is like something out of a fairy tale. Along the path people have brought little trinkets like a kid's toy and another items. They have left them nestled in the bushes for other people to see. Note the path to the stones on a wet day may get a little bit muddy so there for walking shoes or wellies would be required. The Stones themselves are nestled in the middle of a field with open views around you. Take as long as you like as it is not timed and it's free to view. On a good day even a nice place to spot and have a picnic.
This area is magical. It's difficult to put into words the joy I felt in this place.
