Circles, Monoliths & Tors

27 06 2012

Who is the best architect – man or nature? This post features some of the stone circles, standing stones and tors to be found in Britain (you can hover over the pictures to see what/where they are)…

Man’s Contribution:


one of those stones looks like a druid!


Wonder what they were trying to say with this one?

Nature’s Work:

And of course, there’s that great architect, the sea…

You decide…

I was just talking about Brimham rocks and bilberries yesterday! Great childhood memories – must take my two little scramblers there one of these days.

Bilberrying is one of my favourite things to do when I’m out and delays me on many a walk. Once, while my Mum & me were bilberrying at Brimham, a woman pulled her children away and told them not to pick berries as they can be dangerous! Wonder why she thought we were both stuffing our faces with them?

Brimham’s a great place to visit – excellent bilberries (blaeberries to you guys?) all over the site too! 🙂 I’ve scrambled up a few of the easier ones in the past but was good at getting stuck on them and needing help to get back down!

Lovely pictures. Growing up near Dartmoor I used to like to see the circles and rows.

I love the tors on Dartmoor too – we have tors on our moors but much smaller…

Great pics – lovely contrast between the natural and the man-made!

I bet I’m not the only reader who was ticking off the ones already visited 🙂

My favourite is definitely that Hebridean standing stone which looks like they’re giving visitors (or invaders in those days) the finger! 😉
