As it's close to King Arthur's Round Table, and of a similar vintage then it is worth seeing, in fact, it's probably a little better. It would look better from the air, but that wasn't an option, so I clambered up the mound, walked around...More

Lovely little walk, also stopped to see Arthur's round table. Nice bit of neolithic/pagan history. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Penrith.
