The ancient Bronze
Age monument, dating from 2000-1800BC is close to the A3400, Stow on the

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.
