  • You need to have a good imagination here, even with the signboards. Not sure if all the stones are still there, supposed to at least 50, but I couldn't see that many. £1.00 charge per person a bit ste...  more »

  • Interesting to see, although none of the stones are still standing. It's not too far a walk from the very small car park, note it is uphill and across a field with plenty of cow dung and cows!! I didn't visit the barrow, you can see it's a large mound that's it (seen one seen them all!). Please note there is an entrance fee per person ( currently £1) that you put in a money box by the farm.
  • Great place to view . Could you please tell the farmer to put the road sign back up . Its not a lot of good leaning against the wall in his yard .
  • Nice and low key stone circle in the middle of a farmer's field. Definitely worth a look, though admittedly a short visit
  • Easily one of the most important and best preserved henge monuments in the country. The earthworks (the ditch and bank) are especially well-preserved. Definitely worth a visit
  • Love it here :-D

Where to stay in Bakewell

Consider a stay in one of the Georgian-style cottages that populate the town center. Shops and restaurants are readily accessible to centrally located B&Bs and inns. A country inn closer to the outskirts of the city provides peace and quiet, as well as a midway point between the town and the main attractions in the countryside, such as the restored halls and manors.
