  • The area has a special classification for not having light poluation at night. So star gazing is a must. During the day there is a small charge in but it is worth it as they keep the walkways clear an...  more »

  • Well worth a stop off. Beautiful countryside and mystical stones with useful info boards. If you count them three times and get the same number you get a wish! I couldn't do it but my annoying husband did and is too rational to make his wish, disappointingly.
  • Little I knew about the place before seeing it on the map while researching a day trip to Stratford upon Avon. After a bit of online research the curiosity sparkled the interest to go there. I mean, what could be more exciting than some folk tales, modern paganism and wicca connections now-a-day? I need some magic in my life, for sure. There are no signposts, so you need to rely on a good sat nav. There is no parking space per se so probably weekends and public holidays (certainly other days of a pagan resonance) will constitute a problem. There is a collection box for the symbolic 1 pound entry fee. The information found online speaks of various acts of vandalism which is a shame, really. Once there, the three sites are quite close to each other and half an hour spent there seems like just enough. But, there is a pleasant walk southwards from Whispering Knights to the village at the bottom. Once there you can take the road to the right and go around to the original parking space (consider adding an extra 1-1 1/2 h for this). The site does not strikes as something extraordinary (if you were expecting such thing) but it makes you wonder about the people who build it and the reason for that, which it is still a mystery. Also the folk tales will colour the gaps. I was also looking up in the sky, cautious about any flying brooms. I guess I wanted a bit of magic...
  • Amazing stone circle, well preserved and well looked after. Worth the visit
  • Lovely site with great views. Shame that two of the three Stone sites are behind railings, somewhat spoiling photo possibilities, and parking is basically limited to a lay-by, so you may have to wait to get a place to park.
  • Worth a visit for 5000 year old history
