Easy walk along the field edge then across the final field (of thistles) to the trig point. Interesting remains of a stone circle under the tree.

Walked around edge of field from the west and through a bit of wasteland to the trig. Not much to see but interesting standing stones.

Parked at South Fornet and headed around field boundary but then no option but to head through crop (short at the moment) and over fence and wall to trigpoint. Wonder if there was a better route?

Surprised to see how close the trig was built to the standing stones!

Loved the setting beside standing stones. Misty when I visited, so very atmospheric.

Visiting stone circle, of which only 2 stones survive.

View looking WNW towards stone circle. View of South Fornet stone circle. Only 2 stones are still standing; a pile of rubble 120m SW at the field edge may be the remains of an out-lying stone.

The plate number is correct, photograph available. However the number belongs to another trigpoint.
