Photographer's Note

Of all the Dartmoor stone circles Scorhill is probably the least prominent in the moorland landscape yet when comparing the actual sizes of stones it must be the most impressive. Today the circle can boast 23 standing granite stones and 11 fallen stones which form a circle with a diameter of 27 metres, the stones vary in height from 2.49m to 0.85m and are set roughly at intervals ranging from 0.6m to 0.9m.
It was getting late in the evening when Gladys and I visited,so being of nervous disposition she was soon ready to leave as night fell and the mist rolled in off of the open moor,me,I could have stayed much later if only we had made proper provision,Dartmoor is no place to go unprepared even in Summer.
