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.

When we eventually found this place (as with most places in the Peaks, it's not well signed and we had to resort to Google), we had a lovely walk up to the stones. It was very peaceful and there was an atmosphere of respect and tranquility about it, and without the commercialisation that has become standard in a lot of... More

We stopped here enroute to York on the basis of a mention in the Time Team's archaeology guide. A lovely spot with wonderful views over the surrounding country. As usual with standing stone sites, you have to keep your wits about you to find it and there are no facilities, but once you get there, English Heritage have done their... More

Visited today. Very deep spiritual experience. Felt very connected.... What a magically unique place. Go there and be part of the past. Will be going back again and again....

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
