Suggest walking the whole length of the walk - through the stud farm along the ridge. Nearby "Whispering Knights" installation is fascinating and an abundance of wildlife throughout (though I suspect it might have been a bit miserable if it had been raining!)

Stone circle which apparently has stones unable to be counted. Associated with several legends. Also very nearby the Kingstone and the Whispering Knights. Very atmospheric.

Historic landmark close to Chipping Norton. There is limited off-road parking very close by. There is an honesty box for the small entrance fee. Well managed paths. Looked after by English Heritage. It is worth reading about the myths attached to these monuments. Apparently a...More

We visited today and the weather was somewhat changeable and very windy/cold! Great views from the stones and loads of great walks to and from.

Rollright stones are thought to be dated back to 3000 BC. Said to be magical stones. After watching Outlander I'm wondering if there are any truths in these stone being time travellers . Only joking

Definitely worth seeing if you enjoy Stonehenge/ ancient ruins. There are 3 separate stone monuments around the site and the views of the countryside are pretty stellar. We particularly enjoyed the folklore around the 'King' stone. This stone was originally a man, but a witch...More

This should be more than it is. A circular walk would be imaginative & allow the landscape to be appreciated a little more. The stones need to sit more in their landscape farmed land is too close by. Fast road doesnt help. I'm sure with...More

Situated on the rolling English hills this set of standing stones felt very atmospheric on the misty day that we visited. There is a small car park or we walked 1.5 miles from Salford, a beautiful walk even in the grotty weather

The layby is right next to the entrance, not very well sign posted right at the stones, we drove past and had to turn round.
