“Neolithic history in a towbar centre ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

We were staying for a long weekend in Brewery Square Premier Inn (very good) and had half an hour spare.

The ring is just five minutes around the corner and we'll worth a look. You just don't expect something like it with a bustling town.

Fascinating.

“Open Space - Great for a Picnic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

You have to use your imagination if you want to see a Roman amphitheatre as it's effectively a grass ring.
However it's a great open space and ideal for picnics etc. It's free to get in so well worth a quick look if you are in Dorchester

“Next to the skateboard park!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

A very simple earthwork which we nearly lost to the railway. I am a railway nut but this would have been a desecration. As it was the Civil War caused changes to it but it basically now just a peaceful place to be enjoyed.

Worth popping in if passing, but not a lot to see. Small, well kept, but, apart from the ring and a notice boiard fgiviong information, that was it. !5-30 minutes well spent
