This stone circle of 19.8 x 17.8m (65 x 58ft) is about 360m (1180ft) south of the B3357 road and near some beautiful stone rows and a standing stone, in dramatic moorland scenery. The eleven remaining stones of the circle, of local granite, are only 30-45cm (1ft to 1ft 6in) high. This area of Dartmoor is littered with prehistoric sites, but most of them are hard to find and difficult to reach without a good map: the Merrivale stone group is the most easily accessible.
