    interesting place
    Druids' Temple, built in about 1800 by William Danby of Swinton Park. During a time of agricultural depression and high unemployment, Danby hired local men to construct a moderately large-scale replica of Stonehenge, working at a full shilling a day. Café and toilets at the parking area with glamping hire as well. After a 10 minute walk you reach the temple, interesting.

    Atmospheric Folly
    Have wanted to see this for a long time. Made the mistake of going on a Bank Holiday when very busy! Lots of dogs! Really interesting folly, set in woodland and easy walk from a car park. Would be better to go when quiet as too many dogs and kids running around, so pick your times!

    Great place to explore
    A great spot for walking with lots of routes of different lengths you can explore. I used it as a starting point for a longer walk around the surrounding countryside. The stones themselves are interesting, not something I'd seen before! The facilities are very good. There is a good amount of parking - it costs £3 in cash but you can also pay by card at the cafe. The toilets are excellent, clean and well-maintained. I went on beautifully sunny day after a dry week and still came across some muddy patches, so I imagine it could get quite muddy after it rains!

    Worth the drive.
    Travelling to a camping site so on the way there did a detour to Druids Temple. Very windy narrow roads to get there, but worth the visit. The cafe at the start (or finish) is lovely for a bite to eat. The views are lovely. Did not do all the walk round.

Fascinating place. If you enjoy follies and unusual settings in the landscape, this will appeal. Set in beautiful woods and outstanding countryside.

It had rained a great deal therefore it was very muddy but interesting to visit. The Temple is older than I first thought and the woods are very tranquil.

After randomly finding this spot, we explored this place and went for a walk. It's a good walk and the temple it's self is pretty cool.
