|Description ||gps track plot of my wanderings round Craddock Moor stone circle on Sunday. Many of the stones can be seen in the picture. |
I use an ageing Garmin etrex Venture pocket reciever, and the track is plotted out using GPSVisualizer, with only a few minutes fiddling.
I find it amazing the results that can now be obtained for things like this, using cheap, readily available technology, in a pocketsized device.
| Very interesting and very cool.|
I often think that after I've investigated the stones I spend more time in the middle of the Stone Circles I visit. Most intriguing.
| When here, at the end of the summer, the grass and suchlike was very long, making most of the stones difficult to spot, so I first walked around the outside checking out what I could find. Then I walked around again taking photos, hence some excursions from the circle. I then went to the middle to survey the scene asa whole before looking for somewhere to sit and eat lunch, which I would like to be the middle of the circle, but in this case there was only long grass there, so a convenient and comfortable looking stone at lower right did the job. |
Then I looked at and played about with my gps and was amazed at the nice circle on the screen, so thought I would "draw" another circle on it before I left !
Reelative to the satellite picture, my circles are offset a bit to the southwest, but I estimate no more than about 3 metres.
