Took a trip over to Stanton Drew to take a look at the stone circles. It's good to visit at differing times of the year and in different light conditions to give a range of perspectives. During the winter months the vegetation has died back and vistas are so much clearer. I wanted to get some close up photographs and look closer at the texture of the various rock types. The two images above are of the stone at position ST 60045/63309 in the Great Circle. This particular stone comprises sandstone with distinct cross-bedding visible and has layers of fine to medium subangular to rounded gravel of quartz.
The two images above are of the stone at position ST 60034/63322 in the Great Circle. This particular stone comprises oolitic limestone, possibly Inferior Oolite Group of Middle Jurassic age. It has a 'gritty' texture as exposed in the solutional features.
