If you're looking for Stonehenge, forget it. But if you're looking for an easy and intimate prehisoric site where you can get amongst the historic relics, 'tis the place. The views over Long Compton and towards Stratford are spectacular. Don't forget the honesty box.....

Just how old these stones are no is quite sure, although a reasonable stab has been made. The burial chamber and King's Stone are good, but the real treasure is the Stone Circle. Tradition has it they are the king and his courtiers frozen by...More

A bit disappointing to see rubbish left in the lay-by. Some people were still camping following Solstice. We walked the three areas which are in a lovely rural setting. I felt a bit disappointed having seen the Avebury Stones which I'd definitely recommend.

The stones are in an open field with a pleasant walk between them. Worth a visit to see stones that date back thousands of years.

The Rollright Stones is a group of 3 ancient stone monuments, lesser known than Stonehenge but older and so accessible. They are right beside the road, in a field, and you can see them after giving a small donation and entering the gate. The oldest...More
