This was a perfect little circle, 7 metres in diameter.
It comprised eight stones (two fallen) averaging one metre in height,
two of which, only 90 cm apart, formed an entrance to the N with another pair set radially outside the circle,
slightly farther apart. This entrance passage, 2.1 metres long, faced a large axial stone:
a rectangular slab 150 by 90 cm on the opposite side of the circle.


The same circle nearly 30 years later, photographed by Tom FourWinds.
What a mess! What a scandal!
