Click and drag your mouse in the picture to scroll around the circle of Wet Withens. The initial view is towards the northeast over the 'Chair Stone' which is visible in patch of grass at the centre of the view. The rock outcrop of Higger Tor is above and to the right on the horizon with the outcrop of Carl Wark a little further right. In contrast to the heather covered Eyam Moor surrounding Wet Withens - Shatton Edge and Offerton Moor standing to the northwest are lush and green pasture land. The view to the north is dominated by the Derwent Valley and the hills above Hathersage and Bamford beyond.

Much of the northern section of the circle has lost its stones, beside the Chair Stone there is only a single other stone visible towards the northwest. The southern section has fared better with eight stones forming an arc from the east round to the southwest of which six are visible through the heather and long grass in this panorama.
