Duddo Stone Circle

We visited this wonderful little site yesterday and as one of my facebook contacts said they couldn't find it when they visited so they gave up and went to the pub instead (A likely story) I thought I'd publish this to help others to find it.

I've been a few times over the last 10 years or so but this is the first time I've been when the new parking notice and info board have been put up - fairly recently I think cos the board talks about the excavations in 2009.

Anyhoo - Park at NT 932 425 on the grass verge next to the gate, go in through the gate and walk alongside the field, following the path north. The path signposts take you down and round the bottom of the field which quite frustrated me after years of taking a short-cut through the crops! But I suppose cos the farmer's gone to the trouble of signposting it and allowing access we should make the effort...

this map shows the route:

Thank you for your photos and map of the Duddo Stones. From the Boston, Massachusetts, neighborhood Dorchester, I found the stones while on the road heading for the trees alone, and then with my husband twice. Next time we want to go by bus from Lowick or Berwick to Duddo. We saw that it was possible by bus this past Spring but had less time due to the volcano.
