The Arbor Low Stone circle is accessed by parking at a farm, paying 1 pound pp (honesty box) and walking up the hill, across a field where friendly cows are grazing, to the circle. The history is fascinating and the short trek is worth it.

Arbor Low Stone Circle is our closest English Heritage site, so I decided to go for a visit with my 20 month old today. It was well worth a visit. Extremely atmospheric in the morning mist. It only costs a pound per adult to pass...More
