Down to the ford at Little Varracombe and up towards Sittaford Tor....
...where we diverted across to the very recently discovered stone circle. All the stones are lying down and were covered by vegetation. It is the first to have been discovered on the High Moor for over 100 years and is believed to have been built during the late Bronze Age approximately 4000-5000 years ago. The stone circle is approx. 250 south west of Sittaford Tor at grid reference SX 63055 82801. From Sittaford Tor follow the old stone wall until you come to an upright stone.
