Arbor Low's stone circle is ... well, it's a circle of stones lying down (they were pushed over in mediaeval times). They're rough local limestone, unlike the smoother Stonehenge. They're annoyingly difficult to get a decent photograph of. I was actually more impressed by the age of the nearby burial mound -- make sure you see that. The lower half... More

This is a large and unspoilt stone circle set on high ground in the beautiful Peak District. It is most impressive with a large burial mound also visible close to the stones. It is some way from the car parking area to the actual site but do not be deterred-the walk is truly worth it. Staggering to think that 6000... More

Cracking stone circle with interesting Barrow/s to South West. Windy when we visited, just the sort of places you would wish dead souls to be blown to the new life. Well worth a look and as has been stated of very significant standing given the age of the site. Was Stonehenge just a southern copy?? There is car parking up... More

beautiful unspoilt location, albeit a bit windy, unspoilt by the English heritage as are many of the more well know stone circles ... About 1/2 mile walk from the car park ....

Arrived on a winter's day, and a few feet of snow on the site, (got the car stuck in the 'car park'). Even so it was a breath-taking moment for me. As a first visit to this site, I felt a sense of awe as we approached the site. If you enjoy history, and 'Time Team' you'll love this spot,... More

This was a very quiet spot that we stumbled upon on a very frosty morning. The site is located on private property, so you have to cut through a small, sweet cow farm to get there. There is an honor box for collecting a small fee. Like most ring circles, there is never good signage and you have to use... More

You can feel the history in the air.....Simple, ancient site with a place to park and a short walk to the stones, which are laid flat in a large field. No Visitor Centre or facilities- thankfully!

I have visited Arbor Low many times, in different seasons, sometimes when it was busy, sometimes when I was alone, and it has never failed to move me. The fact is that nobody truly knows what compelled a sparse neolithic population to come together to dig the ditches, raise the mound, and move these gigantic limestone stones here. We don't...

Such a wonderful find and lives up to its name of the Stonehenge of the North. Would have liked a little more information upon arrival. The signs say for humans to please not walk on the banks, and yet the sheep appear to have full use of them. Perhaps not helping conservation!
