Rollright Stones

Great Rollright, Oxfordshire.

The ancient Bronze Age monument, dating from 2000-1800BC is close to the A3400, Stow on the World road  near Long Compton. There are three sites associated with the monument, the Stone Circle itself, 100 feet across with seventy stones, which it is said that visitors cannot count the same number twice,  the Whispering Knights, a group of five stones which are the remains of a long barrow and the King, a solitary stone.
There is a small admission charge to the Stone Circle.
