Also known as The Dancers and Kiss-In-The-Ring, this circle is the well-earned reward to anyone willing to hike the  5km across open moorland to visit it. The 16.5m (54-foot) circle of twenty-six stones lies at the southern terminus of an incredibly long 3.6km (2-1/4 miles) stone row. Erected on a level shoulder of a gently-sloping hill, the circle has a commanding view of the river Erme and stark beauty of the surrounding moorland. The stones vary from 0.8m (2 feet 6 inches) to 0.9m (3 feet) in height, with a much taller 1.6m (5-foot 4-inch) pillar located at the circle's NNW position. The pillar is not in line with the long row of stones, which wander along difficult terrain when it is wet. The row is not continuous, as there are occasional gaps between and groupings of stones.

Access: A long 5km walk across the moors from Harford.
