stanton drew stone circles

I have been researching the Stanton Drew Stone Circles for a number of years both as an individual and with members of the Bath and Camerton Archaeological Society. The stones seen at Stanton Drew are varied and include, among other rock types; silicified Dolomitic Conglomerate, Oolitic Limestone and Sandstone. The question is; from where were these various stone types sourced?

Pole photography

28th December 2016:

I've put together a rig for pole photography comprising a 5-metre telescopic aluminium pole, Olympus TG-4 camera and using Olympus Share app on my Samsung smartphone, and today was it's first trial use.

Where better to go than over to Stanton Drew Great Circle. The low mist in the valley had lifted and the sun was shining.

Perhaps the sun was shining a little too brightly as it was casting some rather long shadows, but the resulting photographs do give a different perspective of the stones.

The images were all taken to the north-east side of the Great Circle where the Avenues are to be found.
