Whilst this isn't Stone Henge there is a feel to this place. With banks standing 2.1 metres tall and the henge being 79 metres wide this is a large earthwork with a barrow (Gib Hill) thrown in for good measure. What do you need to know: 1. Cost: It costs £1 per head (there is an honesty box next to... More

We visited this on a bleak rainy day, which made it all the more atmospheric - especially as noone else had ventured to it! Parking is off the road towards the farm, payment is £1 for adults as it's on private land. It's a thought provoking setting and well worth a visit.

Every time I am in the peaks I have to come to Arbor Low. It is a wonderful place, great example of a stone circle and pre dates stonehenge. It's very peaceful and there is an atmosphere there, it's difficult to put your finger on. Just a special place to stand and look at the view and imagine what is... More

We stumbled across this place on our travels and it's a beautiful place that you can't help but think of what it was like when this place was being used properly. The views are spectacular and it's a wonderful place to stop off for half and hour or so.

This is an interesting site with a pleasant short walk and good views. There is parking for 3 or 4 carefully parked cars just before the farm or a pull in on the road nearby. Definitely worth a visit if you are passing (took us about half an hour to walk round and read the information boards but you could... More

Great repeat visit to this site - we first came around 25 years ago and have returned several times when we've been in the Peak District - easy to find and with a small car park at the farm & the £1 entrance fee collected in an honesty box - it's a step back in time - literally & figuratively....

We learned of this site from an employee at The Manners Pub and Restaurant. Instead of parking along the road, drive up the farmer's driveway, where he has set aside a few parking places for visitors. There is an honesty container as you walk by their house for a £1 donation.

Worth taking the time to visit although probably not in the wind and rain as I did! Parking for only a few cars. Best to wear walking shoes or boots too

A wonderful atmospheric trip to the Henge at Arbor Low, across a farm yard, pop a quid in the honesty box and hike up tot he Burial Mound and the Henge. The views are stunning, the lambs were in boisterous spirits and provided much amusement , a great picnic spot and easily found.

You need to have your imagination in top gear for this visit. Reading the guide book at home made me realise how busy this area was thousands of years ago. The beautiful views across farmland help you to imagine what the area might have looked like ( although not so open). Great for children.
