|Description ||The site of the long lost timber circle between Upton Magna and Uffington (Shrops), not far from Haughmond Abbey.
Nothing there to see now - and seeing the 'empty' field is difficult enough; there is a fairly deep ditch between road and hedge, which when I visited was full of summer growth of brambles and nettles.
The siting is placed clearly within view of the near omnipresent (for Shropshire) Wrekin, Caer Caradoc (Church Stretton), Long Mynd, Wenlock Edge.
It is a gentle sloping field with views to the north obscured by the rise of Haughmond Hill.
The NMR records it just as an 'uncertain enclosure', while the 1880s map does record a feature at this position.|
|The photo focuses the eye on what might have been there and leaves the imagination to do the rest. (Maybe we can knock up a reconstruction for you?).|
