Pictures of Grey Wethers Stone Circle

in the town of Okehampton, in the county of Devon

About Grey Wethers Stone Circle

This unique double ringed circle is less dramatic than most and is interesting for the fact that the circles lie side by side instead of the more common concentric position.

Grey Wethers Circles can be found on daunting high moorland where soft drizzle and mist can sometimes hide it from view. Nontheless, this restored site is well worth seeking out, the circles are huge, and against the backdrop of eyrie moorland and distant forest is most impressive.

A short walk across the moors and through the forest track will take you Fernworthy Stone Circles, lying in a harmonious woodland setting.
