The view is great, interesting story and could call the place the stonehenge of the North ...but the place should be better looking after....don't mine the sheep but have to walk carefully not to step on their manure..

The circular mound and ditch and the circle of stones, on a hilltop with views for miles, gives a sense of history going back to those who would have gathered in the same spot thousands of years ago. A steep walk, and then a quiet and a view that seems timeless.

A circle of prehistoric white limestone slabs now fallen and used as a playground to the local lambs and sheep. Acknowledged a major sacred site with ancient burial mound in the near distance at Gib Hill. £1.00 to access - good value for the views alone.

This is not the most obvious place to visit or find. But it does show that Stonehenge is not the only stone circle around. It is definitely worth a visit but be prepare to walk around the cows and sheep

As pagans my wife and I visited this ancient and mystical place. I am a follower of the druid way and found the visit to be an uplifting and spiritual one. It may be a little difficult for the infirm (not wheelchair friendly) but a fellow visitor was on crutches and seemed to make the walk from the car parking... More

This was a repeat visit, but as usual we found this historic site to be atmospheric and awe inspiring. You can really feel why our ancestors chose to live here and how life must have been for them.! A must-do visit!!
