Fernworthy

Stone Circle, Devon


This landscape in a clearing
in the conifers is no doubt
not how the setting
was in prehistoric times.

Located in the middle of Forestry Commission land, this is a pleasant circle to visit on the way to Grey Wethers Stone Circle. It is 19.8 (65 feet) across, slightly flattened East to West, and contains twenty-seven stones that are graded in height from north to south, at which position the tallest is about 1.2m (4 feet). It was excavated in 1897, and charcoal fragments were found throughout the circle. The circle is also known as Froggymead.


Access: Park at the end of Fernworthy reservoir and walk 3/4km uphill.
