Well, it isn't grand, it is a bit out of the way and the hill is a bit steep. As others have noted, the nearby dual carriageway is evident. Nonetheless, it was a delightful... read more

Great place to visit. A bit steep to walk round but amazing history. Great to stand and think about what had happened in the area. Out of the way but worth finding it.

An usual henge monument well worth a visit. Very surreal in the sunset. One remaining standing stone within a high enclosed embankment.

Ancient man is always challenging. Think this could be better presented but amazing all the same You should also visit King Arthur's table down the hill. It's nothing to do with said king but a Neolithic platform and ditch.

Well, it isn't grand, it is a bit out of the way and the hill is a bit steep. As others have noted, the nearby dual carriageway is evident. Nonetheless, it was a delightful highlight to an evening walk from Eamont Bridge. The Henge is late Neolithic, a depression on a hill-top with a central standing stone. Take a moment... More

The site is ancient and impressiveasis the huge standing stone in the centre. One can only imagine the huge amount of work it took to carry the rocks for its construction up from the nearby river . We had the place to ourselves but the noise of the A6 ruins the atmosphere sadly. If you find this go back to... More

Not much parking and the M6 is an intrusive neighbour but a quite magical atmospheric ancient site nonetheless. Well worth visiting and more visible than the nearly Arthur's Table.

I visited this place in the early morning a few days ago. It was very atmospheric. There is a small lay by to park but at that hour it was empty so it was OK. You need wellies at this time of year. The Standing Stone in the middle is big and impressive. You do need to imagine it as... More

Information on the entrance to this, situated on a busy junction better to carry on park on the left and then walk over the roundabout it less than 50 yards. More information could be available to read

Nowhere to park apart from the road. The information board was helpful but really there is very little to see.

This place does make you think! What was it's purpose? Why, and by whom was it built? This is an impressive and puzzling man made building. What was it? An ancient sports arena? A sacrificial place? An early form of fortification or what? Considering the vast man hours to build it in an area where mere existence was hard it... More
