grywa1.jpg (10815 bytes)The walk to this double-ringed circle is long and tedious, but well worth the effort. Excavated in 1898 and restored in 1909, they contained charcoal bits throughout. Attention to detail during construction is obvious in that the circles stand almost exactly north-south of one another. Standing 4.6m (15 feet) from one another, the north circle is 32.7m (107 feet) in diameter while the other is a mere 20cm ( 8 inches) larger. Now well restored, they were grywa2.jpg (17861 bytes)erected below the crest of north-facing slope, along a pass between two hills. Of course JJ didn't bother to walk, but flew over instead!

Access: Continue west from Fernworthy stone circle for a few hundred metres.
