Its free to visit but there is a charge of £1 PP for access across the private farm land. There is a small carpark up the track towards the farm. Its nice to be in the open air and its a rather quite place, my daughter enjoyed running up the slopes. Its a mini Stonehenge with lovely views. (Gibb Hill... More

This is the Northern equivalent of Stonehenge. Instead of the stones being erect they are on the ground. Not many visitors and very peaceful.

This is a place for quiet contemplation. What were our ancestors doing here three, four or more thousand years ago? This is Derbyshire's version of Stonehenge (but all the stones are lying flat). How did Arbor Low fit into the pattern of stone circles that covered Britain from the south coast to the Orkneys? It is a remote spot off... More

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.
