This circle has, according to Burl, been described as "the finest stone circle in the county". Hmmm...I guess I didn't see it at its best. Or the other circles in the county are not very hot.
The circle shares the hilltop with an ancient fort.
Most of the thirteen stones which still stand (out of a total of twenty-five) are less than a foot tall. One stone stands around 2 and a half feet tall, and there is a fallen stone that would have been around five feet tall.
1/8 A view of the circle from a rise to the northwest.
2/8 Low stones on the eastern arc, looking towards White Hill. The circle is on a level area and the hill falls away sharply to the valley floor where the horizontal line runs across the centre of the picture.
3/8 The complete circle, looking southeast.
4/8 The southwestern arc, looking southeast.
5/8 Another view to the east showing the full northern arc.
6/8 Looking southwest. The ramparts of the <A href="burghhillfort.html">hill fort</A> can been seen on the summit just to the right of centre.
7/8 Looking across the circle to the northwest.
8/8 The eastern arc, looking north.
