Good read that, must get back down there soon, have to see the polisher, east kennet LB and windmill hill. In fact if we didn't go Dartmoor I was going Avebury.

Is there a 69 bus, I wonder where that would take us.

White moor is at the top of mine but with kids in tow it's a bit too far, this was perfect though, no people, wondrous surroundings and a lovely little circle. Easy to get to..........with a car. postman Posted by postman

Cheers, and thanks. Very taken with Dartmoor, pity about selfish landowners though, and the dull skies. postman Posted by postman

Thanks TSC. It's definitely one of the best circles that I have been to. A circle, with a Boulder Burial and a Standing Stone inside - all in magnificent mountain scenery. What more could you ask for ? Meic Posted by Meic

Dun Grianan / Fieldnotes by LesHamilton

Les, Please would you be kind enough to remove or revise your route map, as the route and directions you have provided above actually lead directly through my garden? The large poly tunnel you walk past may have given you some indication of this. Dun Grianan is normally accessed through the croft gate (3rd on the left on the Ellishadder township road). The path you have described is in actual fact a shallow drainage ditch, which may have been dry at the time you visited Dun Grianan. Also the high voltage sign you observed is not 'mischief on someone's part'. The post is simply a recycled electricity pylon with the sign still attached. It may also be worth noting that the Staffin Museum carpark is for the use of museum customers rather than visitors of Dun Grianan. Posted by Ailsa319

Round Loaf / Image by LivingRocks

Hi Jamie, its taken on the road from Rivington to Belmont. Near to Dean Brook there is an uphill section followed by a sharp left hand bend, as you round the bend there is a layby on the left, the shot is from there. I went up after getting the Aurora Watch red alert at 9.00pm and the photo was taken at about 11.00pm by which time the earlier mist had mostly gone & there was quite a crowd gathered along the road.

West Kennett Avenue / Fieldnotes by thesweetcheat

Thanks June. Another 49 inspired walk, it's a great bus service.

I stayed away from that discussion, although I did read it, on the basis that I don't know enough about the traffic situation to have a useful opinion. It would obviously be nicer along there without the traffic, but I have no idea what effect that would have on (a) the locals and (b) other traffic that would presumably end up on the A4 or the main road through the henge.
