Large stone circle and burial mound. Small car park available just before the farm. The land owner charges £1 per person to access the site but it is well worth it.

Plenty of signs around the whole site to interpret the Stone Circle, embankment and Long Barrow. For more information see English Heritage webpage

Just a few miles from where we were staying so had to visit. Access is via private land on a farm who charge £1. Then you cross a field with sheep & then you can see the site with the stones laying down on the ground. I met a fellow visitor who said that StoneHenge, Avebury & Arbor Low are all on the same alignment. Worth visiting just for that reason.

Great place reminds me of Stonehenge.
The admission is £1 that you put in a small black box located on the path to the site (See Photos).

You go through two wooden gates to the stones
that are located on the farm
when I say farm I mean you have to walk over part of a farm the stones are not far from the main road maybe a 5 minute walk.

The site is awesome and the sunset is out of this world there is a few signs with some history about the site well worth visiting here.

Parking is a small layby on the site or there is a layby on the road that you can park on and both are free.

Road upto the parking area is uneven and is a chalk road so be careful when approaching. Their is a charge of a £1 per adult but kids go free. The monument is situated on private land. The walk is short and not too challenging and once up the views from the circle are breathtaking. The circle and earth works are impressive. Their is a short walk to the burial mound. Over a stile or two and then down back to the farm yard. We throughly enjoyed the visit.

Just about one of the most magical sites I've ever visited. Park in the farm track lay-by,walk through the farm yard and up towards the mound encircling the stones.

Pass to the left and the entrance way to the stones opens up in a magical box kinda way. The feeling is just incredible as the stones come into view.

Experience the moment. You won't regret it

Fascinating circle and for a pound you can really get a picture of life in its time. You can hug, rub and lie on the stones for that extra sensation of a link with the past. Not a difficult walk but not for wheelchairs. Parking for about 5/7 cars.
