The ruinous circle of Loudon Wood is difficult to find in its Forestry Commission setting. When we visited in 1987 large amounts of timber debris had been dumped on the site, completely obscuring parts of the circle. We could see that the recumbent and the western flanker were still standing, and that the eastern flanker, although fallen, was present, one other circle stone was visible. One further standing, and two fallen circle stones are also supposed to remain, but we presume that these were buried under the huge piles of ankle-breaking forestry rubbish. The recumbent is reasonably large at 3.1m long and an estimated 12tons, it is aligned on the major southern moonset.
