The Glebe Stone Circle, also known as Cong North or Glebe 1, is one of four stone circles located within 170 yards of one another representing a wide range of styles.

The Glebe Stone Circle is approximately 45 feet in diameter. It has over 20 stones, many of which have been reduced to ground level. Just off center, there is a collection of small stones forming a low cairn. The tallest of the stones is about four feet high, while the widest stone is a little over four feet wide. There is a kerbed cairn roughly in the center of the circle.
