#1: The point (center of the stone circle)

(visited by Jean-Luc Frérotte and Natalie Vanderstraeten)

English

15-Aug-2008 -- Ce point n’est pas très loin de chez nous, et bien qu’il ait déjà été visité souvent, nous sommes allés le voir. Il est dans une jolie région du nord du Luxembourg, près du village de Enscherange. Il est au bord d’un chemin en pierre à l’est du village, pas difficile à trouver.

Le site est toujours semblable aux descriptions des visites précédentes : il y a un cercle de pierre avec un poteau métallique qui marque la confluence, un cadran solaire et un panneau d’explication sur le site et les coordonnées géographiques. Les champs ont été fauchés, il y a des grands ballots de paille et des tas de fumier.

Ce serait bien d’y retourner en hiver un jour où il y a beaucoup de neige pour voir la différence.

15-Aug-2008 -- This point is not very far from our home, and although it was already visited many times, we went to see it. It is in a nice area of the north of Luxembourg, close to the village of Enscherange. It is just along a stony path at the east of the village, not difficult to find.

The site is still similar to descriptions of the preceding visits: there is a stone circle with a metal post which marks the confluence, a sundial and a panel with explanations about the site and about the coordinates system. The fields were mown, there are large bundles of straw and heaps of manure.

It would be interesting to be back here in winter when there is much snow to see the difference.
